Library Information

A literary club called the "Winter Society" founded the Free Library of the Town of New Utrecht in 1894. Its members applied to join the Brooklyn Public Library system in 1901, when New Utrecht Branch also moved to Linwood House on Bath Avenue and Bay 17th Street. As the library continued to grow, it moved several more times, until 1956 when the present two-story brick building, designed by Candela and Resnick, opened.
