Library Information


Temporary Closing

The Coney Island Library will be closed on Tuesday, May 26th because the water supply is being shut off due to construction in the neighborhood.

We are sorry for any inconvenience.

 

The Coney Island Branch started as an unstaffed deposit station in a Surf Avenue store in 1911. It became a fully staffed branch in 1921 after moving to the old offices of the Coney Island Times on Stillwell Ave. In 1954, its new library was called "the first-ever library built on stilts over the Atlantic Ocean."
