Library Information

The former Prudential Savings Bank building on Flatbush Avenue was Flatlands Branch's first home in 1949. The library remained there until 1955, when the current structure became the first library built in Brooklyn under the Beame plan. The 6,000 square-foot building was renovated in 1985 and 1987.
