The Brooklyn Town Library Association is a non-profit organization operating the Brooklyn Town Library. The Association was incorporated in September 1893. The current library building was erected in 1821 to serve as a bank. In 1826, an addition was built to house an insurance office. A group of concerned citizens purchased the building in 1913 and donated it to the Library Association for use as The Brooklyn Town Library.
The Library is very active in promoting reading for children of all ages. For the past few years the library has supplied a Reading Room at the Brooklyn Summer Recreation Program. Library staff provides reading activities, books and games for children who attend, and an additional summer reading game for children woh do not attend the recreation program.
The Brooklyn Town Library Association will give the residents of Brooklyn the means to continue to learn throughout their lives, to meet their recreational reading interests , to find, use and evaluate information in a variety of formats, and the library will continue to be an important part of Community Life in Brooklyn and remain a free public library.
