Amenities


One of Brooklyn’s most beautiful Carnegie branches, Carroll Gardens Library has served its neighborhood for more than 100 years. Its spacious, 14,000-plus square-foot interior retains its original, dramatic barrel-vaulted ceiling and other historical features. The branch’s most popular programs include Toddler Time and wellness activities for older adults.

Carroll Gardens Library Renovation 

Carroll Gardens Library is closed for a much-needed renovation project managed by the City's Department of Design and Construction (DDC). The renovation will include a brand-new teen space on the mezzanine level, a new heating and cooling system, new architectural lighting throughout the main floor and upgrades to the fire alarm and safety systems to ensure everyone's well-being. The historic details on the main floor of this 100+ year old building will be highlighted through this renovation. Carroll Gardens Library is expected to reopen in 2025.
