Brooklyn Public Library’s Carnegie Libraries

Janes Walk

Led By Brooklyn Public Library / Center for Brooklyn History

The Carnegie tour highlights a handful of BPL’s Carnegie libraries. All architectural gems, some have been lost to time. Around the turn of the last century, over 1,500 were built, including 21 in Brooklyn.
