Library Information

In the past 12 years, the Flatbush branch has undergone extensive renovations, including the installation of new windows, doors, and a Caribbean Literary and Cultural Center.

On November 16, 2013, the Flatbush Branch offically launched it's Caribbean-themed community garden by holding a bulb planting event. The branch plans to fully open its gates to the new Sunshine, Seeds, and Reads Community Garden in the Spring of 2014.
