Library Information

The Fort Hamilton Free Library, predecessor of the Fort Hamilton Branch, was founded over 100 years ago with capital of "faith and five dollars." In 1901, it became a branch of Brooklyn Public Library and in 1905 it moved to its present building. Since then it has undergone numerous renovations but retains one of its two original tiled fireplaces with wood paneled surrounds.

The Fort Hamilton Library reopened to the public on March 28, 2011. Closed since March 2008, Fort Hamilton received extensive renovations to restore historic details, improve the library's interior and expand public space for library customers.
