Library Information


Midwood branch dates to 1912 when it opened as a deposit station in Coney Island drug store. After several other moves, it became a full-fledged branch in 1929. During the 1950s, Midwood became one of nine libraries to receive a new building constructed by the City. In January, 1998, the Midwood Branch reopened after a two-and-a-half year renovation which extended the public area and brought the library many improvements, including full access for the handicapped.
