It's All Happening at the Park Slope Public Library


Known as the "Prospect branch" until 1975, Park Slope Library's founding dates to a small collection of natural history books housed in Prospect Park's Litchfield Mansion in the early 20th century. A storefront library soon opened on Ninth Street until the beautiful Andrew Carnegie-funded building opened at its current location in 1906. The inside of the branch is a marvel of early twentieth-century elegance, with stained glass archways, freestanding columns, a vaulted, stained glass ceiling and a pair of tiled fireplaces.

In today's world, local libraries serve not only as wonderful places to discover authors, but also as friendly hubs where people of all ages can search for jobs; surf the web, etc. Events are also a draw for this beloved library.
