Canarsie Library

Canarsie Library has served southeast Brooklyn since 1909, when it opened as a deposit station with a small collection of books. Since joining the BPL system in 1932, Canarsie has twice moved to larger facilities in response to high demand for its services. The library has operated at its current location since 1960.

Canarsie Library (BPL) serves the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn.
