Temporary Closing

Starting Sunday, October 23, 2016 the Midwood Library will close while we make computer upgrades.  The branch will reopen on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at its regularly scheduled time at 1:00 p.m. In the meantime, please visit these nearby libraries for all your other BPL needs:  Kensington Library - 4207 18th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11218; Kings Highway Library - 2115 Ocean Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11218 ; Ryder Library - 5902 23rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11204

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.
