National Design Library Moves into New Spaces


The Carnegie Mansion on Fifth Avenue, home of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, is closed for the next two years as it undergoes extensive renovations. The Museum’s National Design Library – established in the 1890s by the Museum’s founders, the Hewitt Sisters, at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art – has occupied the Mansion’s third floor since the collections were obtained by the Smithsonian in the 1970s
