Marcy Library began life under a different name and in a different location. The Tompkins Park Free Library, located in the center of its verdant namesake, opened on June 6, 1899, in a pretty Grecian-style shelter with windows on all sides and an alcove for sorting books. The branch was assimilated into the new borough-wide system in 1901. A library historian of the era noted that “because of the building’s small size, it was considered desirable to have a small librarian and, for many years, petite Miss Edith Patridge filled that role.” By 1969, the community had outgrown the diminutive branch, and a new Marcy Library opened at its current location in March of that year.
