Metropolitan New York Library Council
Where New York’s libraries and archives come together to learn, share ideas, and collaborate.
What we're about
Libraries do a lot these days. So does METRO. We were founded in the 1960s to deliver books between libraries. We still deliver books, and we also host digital collections, give out technology grants, house a digital media studio, and more. METRO is committed to supporting libraries, in whatever form that takes.
The METRO Studio
Providing access to state of the art tools for recording, imaging, data recovery and more.
Who We Are
Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is a non-profit organization that works at the intersection of knowledge and media.
We provide services that extend library and archival services by providing access to the tools knowledge producers needs in order to create, share, and preserve their messages.
This takes the form of connecting learners to information through our delivery service to providing continuous education to knowledge workers to hosting art exhibits and performances.
METRO is a platform for creating knowledge, no matter what form it takes.
