Founded as the Webster Free Library in 1893, the branch was named after Charles B. Webster, who donated the building on East 76th Street where the library was originally located. The current site on 78th Street and York Avenue was constructed from funds donated to New York by Andrew Carnegie. The branch opened to the public on October 24, 1906 and today serves a diverse community of New Yorkers on the Upper East Side with multiple collections.
