Located just north of a growing shopping center, Ridge Park Square, and near the city hall and municipal park, the Brooklyn Branch is an integral part of the community.

Opened in 1992 and adorned by several Amish quilts, this 19,514 square foot building has vaulted ceilings with high windows that add to the bright atmosphere. Housing books, music, interactive multimedia, books on tape, and videotapes, the branch also offers the use of 16 Internet terminals, 2 personal computers, and an electric typewriter. Two meeting rooms are available for use by non-profit organizations.

Unique to area libraries, the Brooklyn Branch has a toy lending library which holds over 1,700 toys. Selection is made by professional staff who consider safety, stimulation, and quality.

The library offers a number of programs for all age groups: toddlers, teens, adults, parents and children. Seasonal and year-round programming is available and includes computer classes, summer reading games, career workshops, and arts and craft activities. Call 216.398.4600 for more information.
