Originally called South Branch, the original Sunset Park Library opened to the public on December 9, 1905, at 5108 Fourth Ave (at 51st Street). The original two-story, Classical Revival-style building, designed by architects Lord & Hewlett and funded by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, was demolished in 1970 and rebuilt in 1972.

Brooklyn Public Library and the Fifth Avenue Committee (FAC), a nonprofit with extensive affordable housing and community development experience, teamed up to redevelop Sunset Park Library. The brand new, just over 20,000-square-foot branch is topped by 49 units of affordable housing—including 9 units reserved for victims of domestic violence.
