Brooklyn, Check Us Out!
Every year, more than a million people visit Brooklyn Public Library, borrowing books, attending movie screenings, and learning new skills.
We asked a few of our patrons and staff to share a favorite pick from our collection, and we want you to join us. Show us your own favorite (or current favorite!) book on Twitter or Instagram, hashtag it #checkoutBKLYN, and see it live online!
