Planning for Cortelyou Library began in 1969, but it was not until 1983, after years of patience and hard work by Flatbush residents, that construction was completed and the branch opened. In 2021, the Friends of Cortelyou Library raised over $40,000 to enhance the branch with a revised layout, new reading tables and chairs, new furniture in the children’s area and a teen area. This work happened alongside a New York State-funded project to replace the main room’s shelves, lighting and flooring. 

Cortelyou has a distinctive, welcoming entry, as well as a mural of bright blue triangles that wrap around the building. Cortelyou Library celebrates its community's creativity and professionalism by showcasing Pakistani music, Bengali fiction, Russian poetry and West Indian novels.
