In 1903, the Williamsburgh Library became the first Carnegie library built in Brooklyn. The 26,000 square-foot Classical Revival building featured a central delivery desk, radially arranged stacks, wood wainscoting and fireplaces. The Library was renovated in 1955, and again in 2003-2004.
In 2006, the branch became a designated landmark of New York City.
The Williamsburgh Library is a satellite location of 826 NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their writing skills. Please visit for after school tutoring Monday through Thursdays while school is in session.
Tutoring resumes at 3:00 p.m on Wednesday, September 10th.
