Greenpoint Library wants to start a Lego Club this summer, but we need Legos! Please consider donating to our branch. Select "Greenpoint" under the Direct My Donation tab here. We'll use the funds to purchase Lego sets and other materials that will benefit the Greenpoint community.
Thanks for helping us build a better Greenpoint Library!
The original Carnegie Library was built in a Classical Revival style of brick with limestone trim and a stone balustrade at the roof. The Greenpoint Star praised it on April 14, 1906 for its “tasteful simplicity." As Greenpoint became the center of a Polish community, English classes were offered and a well-stocked Polish book collection was acquired. The building, structurally unsafe, was demolished in 1970. In 1973 a new one-story library opened on the same site. Although not as grand as its predecessor, it provides the community with a resource for knowledge and a meeting place for a new generation of library users. A mural by artist Leslie A. Wood(www.leslieawood.com) was painted onto the side of the building along Norman Ave. in 2013 thanks to the efforts of the Friends of the Greenpoint Library.
