Amenities


Gerritsen Beach Library moved to its 10,000-square-foot facility in 1997. Designed to reflect the character of its waterfront home, the branch features an arched entryway, a clock tower and a two-story picture window overlooking the Shell Bank Channel. Residents today continue to participate in the library's many programs and activities, particularly quilting, a favorite of patrons. Gerritsen Beach Library's two large gardens are tended by the same active community groups that have supported this branch for the past 65 years.
