New Dorp is one of the busiest branches on Staten Island. The New Dorp Community Library was established by local residents in 1907. By 1909, it was receiving books from The New York Public Library’s Traveling Library (the Bookmobile), and in 1926 New Dorp became a branch of The New York Public Library. In 2000, an extensive renovation was completed including a redesigned exterior and remodeled interior.
