Stone Avenue Branch Library

581 Mother Gaston Boulevard
Brooklyn, NY 11212

About the Library:
Stone Avenue opened in 1914 as the Brownsville Children's Library, the world's first public library devoted to children. In the Arts and Crafts style, whimsical details include the Rookwood storybook fireplace tiles and rabbit-head finials on carved wooden benches. In his classic memoir, Walker in the City, literary critic Alfred Kazin recalls the library" where I read my way year after year from every story of King Alfred the Great to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
