Repository description (extant): The Warner Library is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment that allows free and easy access to Library materials for all members of the community.

As a community center, the Library offers quality programs, concerts, courses and exhibits of interest to residents of all ages.

The Warner Library became a reality because of the generosity of local residents Worcester Reed Warner and his wife, Cornelia Blakemore Warner. In the late 1920s they undertook to have a library built as a gift to the community. Since a house already occupied the site they preferred, at the corner of Broadway and Wildey Street, Mr. and Mrs. Warner persuaded the Village of Tarrytown's Board of Trustees to have the house moved to the western limit of the property. That building later became the Tarrytown Village Hall. Mr. and Mrs. Warner engaged architect Walter Dabney Blair to design the library building and construction began in 1928.
