Image of the Week
The year 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of the Brooklyn's Central Library. Throughout this year we will be posting pictures reflecting the history of this landmark building, the people who worked here and the services that were offered from this location. The first installment is an image of the silver trowel with which the ground was broken in 1912 for the first, unfinished attempt to build a library on this site. That effort was derailed by WWI.
