The Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture released the following press release announcing a suspension of programming and events due to concerns about the coronavirus crisis.

As a precaution to help limit the spread of coronavirus and support the City's efforts to promote social distancing, the Schomburg Center has suspended all programming and events at our location through March 31. At this time, our location remains open during our regular hours.

Please know that this was not an easy decision for us to make since we know how important our programs are to our patrons. However, out of an abundance of caution, we feel that this is the best way that the Schomburg Center can support the City's efforts to discourage crowds and encourage social distancing during this challenging time.

As we receive new information, we will continue to update you on our website. We are closely monitoring the situation and are working with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to ensure that we are following all recommended practices and are supporting the health and wellness of both our staff and our patrons. Please use the resources on our website or reach out to Ask NYPL with any questions.

Thank you,

Kevin Young
