The New York State Library is an American research library located in Albany, New York. It is part of the New York State Education Department and was founded in 1818 to serve the state government of New York. With over 20 million cataloged items in 2011, the library is one of the world’s largest in terms of number of items held. [1] The Cultural Education Center, which is part of the Empire State Plaza, a sprawling complex of state government offices in downtown Albany, houses the library and its sister institutions, the New York State Museum and the New York State Archives.
The New York State Library was previously housed in the New York State Capitol and then in the New York State Education Building across Washington Avenue. In the basement of the Education Building, there is still an annex with books, magazines, and newspapers. In 2014, the library made an effort to get rid of some of these artifacts. [2] The New York State Library opened to the public in 1855. In November 1855, a Shaker brother from New Lebanon, New York, paid a visit and marveled at the free access to books: “I spent some time at the state library, which is open to the public and has a wonderful collection of books, maps, and other items — there is a lot of art and money on display there. Anyone can look around or read whatever he wants by simply ordering the book he wants. I went and talked with the Librarian for a while.” From 1888 to 1905, Melvil Dewey served as the state librarian. He established a reference librarian position and a children’s section in the library. [4] Dewey also started traveling libraries, sending around 100 books to communities where there were no public libraries. New York’s traveling library system was frequently used as a model by other states. (5)
