Library Information

Crown Heights Library is a community gathering place, a constant presence in a community that has undergone many changes over the years. Computer courses have long been among the branch’s most popular offerings, while arts and crafts classes also draw crowds. With many families residing in the neighborhood, Reading Is Fundamental and Kids’ Tech Time programs have developed large audiences.
