Browse the Branches

Interested in discovering Brooklyn Public Library’s many unexpected treasures? BPL’s Browse the Branches invites you to visit all 62 locations in person to see for yourself.

Here’s how it works: Pick up a booklet at any Brooklyn Public Library location. Visit a branch, collect its special sticker and place it in the corresponding entry of your Browse the Branches booklet. 

When you fill half the booklet, win a bookmark and 25% off an item at the Brooklyn Public Library web shop. When you fill the whole booklet, receive a special tote! But that’s not all: more prizes include a collector’s library card, gift certificates and other goodies to be announced throughout 2024.

As you cross our vibrant borough, check out free BPL programs, learn surprising facts about libraries, find book recommendations and more. We look forward to seeing you at Brooklyn Public Library. Happy browsing!
