Public Library, Astor, Lenox, and Tilden Foundations.
ESTABLISHED by consolidation of The Trustees of the Astor Library," "The Trustees of the Lenox Library," and "The Tilden Trust,"' May 23, 1895, twenty-one trustees being chosen from the trustees of these corporations. The agreement of consolidation provided for the establishment and maintenance of a free public library and reading-room in the City of New York, with such branches as might be deemed advisable for the continued promotion of the objects and purposes of these several corporations.
The Astor Library was founded in 1849, by John Jacob Astor, and his endowment was increased, and land and buildings added, by the beneficence of various members of the Astor family.
The Lenox Library was founded by James Lenox, who gave land on Fifth Avenue between Seventieth and Seventy-first Streets, large funds and valuable collections of Bibles, manuscripts, and Americana. It received subsequently large endowments from his sister, Miss Henrietta Lenox, from Mrs. R. L. Stuart, and others.
The Tilden Trust, incorporated in 1887, was created by the will of Samuel J. Tilden, made in 1884, which gave his entire residuary estate to trustees to establish and maintain a free library and reading-room. A long contest in the courts resulted, before the termination of the suit, in an agreement of compromise by which the Tilden Trust became possessed of over $2,000,000.
The Trustees soon after the consolidation in 1895 determined to pursue a liberal policy and to create a great library system not only for the use of scholars, but for the people. The best permanent site for the future great library was considered to be in Bryant Park,on Fifth Avenne, between Fortieth and Forty-second Streets on the site of the reservoir, which had become obsolete and was practically unused. On March 25, 1896, the Trustees made a formal address to the Mayor asking aid from the city in securing the site of the reservoir, and in May, 1896, the Legislature passed a law authorizing the removal of the reservoir and the lease of the land to the Library. On May 19, 1897, another act was pass'd providing for the construction by the city of a library building on the reservoir site, and for its lease to the Library, which act was amended in 1900, removing the limit of cost. On November 10 the architects were selected for the new building and on December 1 the plans were approved by the city. The style of architecture will be Renaissance and the material used will be white marble. The building will front on Fifth Avenue, looking east. The greatest projection of the main façade of the building is seventy-five feet back of the Fifth Avenue building line. It is intended to make a terrace out of this seventy-five feet of foreground, serving as a grand approach to the main entrance. The terrace will be 455 feet long. There will be a hallway in the centre of the building eighty feet long and forty feet wide. The staircases which lead to the second and third floors will be of stone, twelve feet wide. The arches forming the vestibule will be thirty-five feet high and fifteen feet wide. The entrance to the stairs and the elevators will be found on the Fortieth Street side. On the first floor will be the main exhibition room. On the second floor will be the rooms of the director and trustees, lecture-room, and reading-room. The top floor will contain the Stuart collection. There will be about 140 feet of ground between the west elevation of the building and the present park. The design of the building will be monumental in character, with classical proportions. After delays, owing to the inability of the city to appropriate funds for the work, the removal of the reservoir
was begun on June 6, 1899. The reservoir has since been removed and ihe foundations for the new bnilding completed and the corner-stone for the building laid. The Park Department, acting on behalf of the city, entered into a contract with contractors to construct the building at a cost of $2,865, 706.
In June, 1900, the Finance Department of the city requested the Library to investigate the condition of free circulating libraries, and on September 24 a report was made, after careful investigation, recommending a definite centralized system of free circulating libraries. On December 11, 1900, the trustees of the New York Free Circulating Library offered to consolidate with the Public Library, and on February 23, 1901, an agreement of consolidation was effected. An act permitting libraries to deed their properties to the Public Library became a law on March 6, 1901, and under it the St. Agnes Free Library and the Washington Heights Free Library have conveyed all their property to the Public Library.
On November 14, 1900, the Library received a communication from the Board of Education for the Boroughs of Manhattan and the Bronx, recommending coöperation with the public schools, and on December 12 an agreement with the Board of Education was made by which books were to be supplied in 1901, for reading-rooms in eight public schools.
On March 12, 1901, Mr. Andrew Carnegie offered to give $5, 200,000 to the city for the construction and equipment of free circulating libraries upon condition that the city should provide the land and agree to maintain the libraries when built. This communication was submitted to the Mayor on March 15, and on April 26 an act was passed authorizing acceptance of the gift by the city upon the terms imposed by Mr. Carnegie. An agreement with the city was executed on July 17, the Library acting as agent for Mr. Carnegie, under which forty-two buildings are to be erected in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Richmond, on sites to be selected and purchased by the city with the approval of the Library, the buildings to be leased to the Library and to be under its control. The city agrees to provide adequate yearly maintenance of 10 per cent of the cost of each building, being agreed upon as a minimum. The Trustees of the Library are: Samuel P. Avery.
