The original Gerritsen Beach Library opened on January 29, 1932, at 305 Gerritsen Avenue, with 3,000 books waiting for the eager patrons crowding into the room. Over the years, the facility evolved from a partially-staffed station to a full-fledged branch, but a lack of space always limited the service the library was able to provide. In the 1990s, a new, state-of-the-art library opened to serve the public.
In 1997, the library moved to its new 10,000-square-foot facility. A clock tower and two-story picture window overlooking the Shell Bank Channel, reflect the character of this waterfront community. Its two large gardens are tended by the same active community groups that have supported the library for the past 65 years.
