The Coney Island Branch started as an unstaffed deposit station in a Surf Avenue store in 1911. It became a fully staffed branch in 1921 after moving to the old offices of the Coney Island Times on Stillwell Ave. In 1954, its new library was called "the first-ever library built on stilts over the Atlantic Ocean."
Coney Island Library has emerged stronger than ever from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. The renovated branch reopened in 2013 with new technology, more public space and innovative design features that showcase the neighborhood’s history. The library’s renaissance has continued with the renovation of the second floor and the opening of a state-of-the-art BRIC television studio available for use by library patrons.
