Brower Park Library is named for George V. Brower, who was Brooklyn Park Commissioner in 1890 and the chairman of the Brooklyn Tree Planting and Fountain Society. Located in the heart of Crown Heights, the branch is a popular destination for local children after school and over the summer.
An innovative new partnership between Brooklyn Public Library and Brooklyn Children’s Museum proposes to bring a new family library to Crown Heights, introducing a groundbreaking cultural resource to families in Central Brooklyn and ensuring the presence of a public library in the neighborhood for generations to come. At the relocated branch, visitors will be able to check out books from the Library and borrow items from the Museum’s collection, as well as enjoy collaborative programs.
