    Excerpt

    George Washington’s Library Books

    During the Revolution, the New York Society Library’s books were looted by British soldiers occupying Manhattan; some were torn up to make wadding for rifles and others were sold for rum. After the war, a few books that had been stored at St. Paul’s Chapel in lower Manhattan were recovered, and in 1784 others were found through advertisement.

    In 1789, the library reopened in its old quarters in the old City Hall. In 1789 and 1790, when New York was the nation’s capital and Congress occupied the building — the renamed Federal Hall – it served as the first Library of Congress; it was used by George Washington and John Jay.
