Williamsburgh Library was designed in a classical revival style, its floorplan meant to evoke an open book, with two wings radiating from the center atrium. At 26,000 square feet, the library is one of Brooklyn's largest.
In 2006, the branch became a designated landmark of New York City.
Williamsburgh Library is a satellite location of 826 NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their writing skills.
826NYC offers after school tutoring in the Williamsburgh Library, Monday through Thursday while school is in session. Advance registration is required. Information on how to register your child is found here.
