The Grove Hall Branch has more than thirty computers available for the public to use. The branch features three study rooms and a meeting room as well as a larger space shared with the Grove Hall Community Center.
The first library in this section of Roxbury opened May 1, 1898 in the rear of Mr. Mowry's Drug Store at the corner of Warren Street and Haynes Park with one table, eight chairs, two shelves and 200 books. It was so well patronized that the Trustees of the BPL voted in 1905 to open a reading room. In 1919 the building on the corner of Warren and Savin Streets officially became the Warren Street Branch Library. In 1926, this branch moved into its new quarters in the New Roxbury Memorial High School and thus became the Memorial Branch Library. The Memorial Branch was replaced in December 1970 by the Grove Hall Branch located at the corner of Warren and Crawford Streets.
On April 4, 2009 the new branch library at 41 Geneva Avenue, Dorchester opened. Located in the newly-renovated Jeremiah E. Burke High School, the new library was designed by Schwartz/Silver Architects. It features a designated teen room and teen librarian, in keeping with its unique configuration, adjacent to the high school.
