Expanded Hours

Aug 30, 2012 1:50 PM | 0 comments

Around here, we think there's nothing quite so discouraging as a pair of closed library doors.  Especially when, as in our case, those closed doors are glass, allowing you to see, from afar, all the wonderful books, maps, prints, and photographs that you can't get to!  We try to put as many of our materials as is possible online, so that you can look up your ancestors in city directories, search for old pictures of your neighborhood, or read through 19th century newspapers from the comfort of your home at all hours of the day.  Still, nothing beats a visit to the library for in-depth research and a hands-on understanding of history.  For that reason, we are happy to announce that we are extending the hours in the Brooklyn Collection reading room!

Starting Tuesday, September 4th, we will open during the following hours:

Monday: Closed

Tuesday: 12:30pm - 7:30pm

Wednesday: 12:30 - 6pm

Thursday:  12:30 - 7:30pm

Friday:  10am - 2pm

Saturday:  1pm - 5:30pm

We hope to be seeing more of you!
