With its gold coffered ceiling and handsome, comfortable spaces, the Library is one of the largest, and surely most peaceful, of any club in the city.
There are over 50,000 volumes in the collection, with more than 1,000 new titles added each year. This is an active lending library and a tranquil haven for when you want to read or study, browse through a magazine, or wirelessly surf the web. There are travel guidebooks, financial and legal reference books (Standard and Poor's Corporation Records, Value Line, the Martindale Hubbell Law Directories), books on tape, and over 100 periodicals. For parents visiting with young ones, there is even a collection of children's books. In the cozy, mahogany-paneled Clarence Day Room, you'll find a collection of Yale memorabilia (class books, reunion books, the Yale Alumni Magazine). You can also rent this space for meetings, including conference calls, for groups of up to eight.
The library is often the pleasant setting for such special events as lectures and readings by authors, as well as the popular annual children's story-hour and brunch. Please click here for the Library Calendar.
It is open year-round and is staffed Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Please contact our Librarian at 212.716.2129 or email@example.com with any questions.
