Gravesend Library opened in 1962. In 2001, the branch underwent a $1.5 million renovation that included new lighting, furniture, shelving, art objects and public computers. Gravesend Library offers very popular Toddler Time programming on Wednesdays. The library also hosts a monthly book discussion club for adults and a Talking Circle program for seniors. Gravesend serves its diverse community with large collections of Russian, Chinese and other multilingual materials.
