Library Information

Midwood Library was founded in 1912 as a deposit station in the Coney Island Drug Store. The branch moved several times over the years and was rebuilt by the City in the 1950s. In 1998, Midwood reopened after a renovation that extended the public area and made the building fully accessible to the handicapped. In 2013, the branch opened its new outdoor plaza, and a forthcoming renovation of the grounds will beautify Midwood Library and make it even more welcoming to patrons.
