Library Information


Currently the Mill Basin Branch has an air conditioning system that has malfunctioned and cannot be repaired in time for the summer months. To accommodate our patrons, we are making some temporary changes to the hours of service.

The Mill Basin Branch will begin Summer Hours starting Monday June 22nd and continuing through Saturday, September 26th. Mill Basin will be open for service Monday through Friday 8:00am – 1:00pm and Saturday 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.

In 1940, Mill Basin Branch opened in a deposit station in the Austin Pharmacy on Avenue T. It moved several times over the next three decades, with the need for more space eventually resulting in new library on Ralph Ave. Mill Basin Branch opened in 1974 in a 7,500-square-foot brick building. In 1997, for the first time in its 100-year history, Brooklyn Public Library installed a plaque in one of its branch libraries to honor a local leader, Dorothy Russo, who led the Mill Basin Civic Association to bring the library into being.
