While no longer operating as a library, the Kingsbridge Branch still stands along Kingsbridge Avenue in the middle of the block between West 230th and West 231st Streets in the Bronx. Set back from the street on a long rectangular lot, it was one of the smallest of the Carnegie branch libraries to be constructed throughout the entire city, at just 3,700 square feet.

Built between 1904 and 1905, it was the fourth Carnegie branch library in the city to be designed by McKim, Mead & White and the third Carnegie branch library to be erected in the Bronx.
