The Tiffany Reading Room is an historic and artistic space, associated with Irvington’s Public Library but located in Village Hall a few blocks away. The Reading Room, which for more than 100 years housed the library’s reference collection, was designed by the artist and decorator Louis Comfort Tiffany, and opened in 1902. It features glowing “turtleback” lanterns, gleaming mosaics, and gilded quotations carved into heavy ceiling beams. The Tiffany Room, fully restored in 2012, is open to the public Monday through Friday (9 AM- 4 PM), for quiet reading, study, and small-group meetings (with prior reservations).
Address: 85 Main Street, Irvington, NY 10533
Note that the Tiffany Reading Room is currently closed until further notice, as its historic finishes cannot be cleaned according to current COVID-19 recommendations.
