In 2006, the branch became a designated landmark of New York City.

In 1903, Williamsburgh Branch became the first Carnegie library built in Brooklyn. The 26,000 square-foot Classical Revival building featured a central delivery desk, radially arranged stacks, wood wainscoting and fireplaces. The Library was renovated in 1955, and again in 2003-2004.

What's New:
The Williamsburgh Library offers free after school tutoring Monday through Thursday 3:00-5:30 PM for students aged 6-18. Please come visit our tutoring center operated in partnership with 826NYC. The library also has an art gallery in the basement with changing exhibits by Williamsburgh and Greenpoint artists.
