Saratoga Library is a Classical Revival-style Carnegie branch with a distinctive Spanish tile roof and a storied history. Opened in 1908, Saratoga was renovated in 1958, 1974 and 1990; in 1997, the branch became New York City’s first library with a garden designed by the Horticulture Society of New York. The garden features a gazebo and two flower beds.
