Library Information

Williamsburgh Library was designed in a classical revival style, its floorplan meant to evoke an open book, with two wings radiating from the center atrium. At 26,000 square feet, the library is one of Brooklyn's largest.

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.

826NYC offers after school tutoring in the Williamsburgh Library, Monday through Thursday while school is in session.  Advance registration is required.  Information on how to register your child is found here.

Spaceworks offers free public programming and affordable workspace for NYC artists. Thanks to BPL’s partnership with Spaceworks, Williamsburgh Library’s second floor has been renovated to host affordable studio and rehearsal space. With the opening of Spaceworks at Williamsburgh in 2015, Brooklyn Public Library has been able to expand our free programming to library patrons while supporting the arts community in Williamsburg and beyond. A report on the first year of Spaceworks @ Williamsburgh is available here.
