Branch Brook Branch Library

235 Clifton Avenue
Newark, NJ 07104

The original branch opened in June 1946, and was located across the street from the present location (and near the present-day Wachovia Bank). In 1964, due to building deterioration, plans were made to move the branch to its current location. At that time, the building was a VA Recreation Hall. The building was refurbished and redesigned to become Branch Brook Branch, and opened to the public in December 1966.
