The Brooklyn Branch is located three blocks east of Hanover and Patapsco in the heart of Brooklyn. The branch, which opened nearly 100 years ago, serves the Brooklyn, Curtis Bay, and Lakeland neighborhoods.

The Brooklyn branch opened on October 15, 1921. In the first week of its opening, the library was so busy it was “nearly impossible to seat all who came to look and read,” according to a Pratt annual report. The original building was demolished in 1964 and was replaced by a new building, which still stands, in 1965. Read more Pratt location history.
