Description

Library Manager - Kirsten Corby

The Norman Mayer Library offers a wide collection of books, music, and movies along with having a computer lab and fax services. There is a dedicated space for children with their own computers plus a space specifically for teens. The library also offers weekly programs such as storytime and weekly tech help in the computer lab. Additionally, the library hosts several adult programs such as a book club and adult coloring.

The library is named for New Orleans businessman and one of the original Tulane College of Commerce and Business guarantors, Norman Mayer. After his passing, his wife donated money to the New Orleans Public Library to have the library opened. Doors opened in 1949 and the library has been serving the Gentilly area since.
