Library Information


An architectural gem, the original Red Hook Branch was the only Brooklyn Carnegie library to be built in Mediterranean Revival style. A fire in 1945 closed the library on Visitation Place, and the city decided to demolish rather than restore it. The branch used rented quarters until 1975 when the current 7,500 square-foot one-story brick library was built on Wolcott Street.
