East Flatbush Branch opens satellite library at Brookdale Hospital

Posted: Updated:

The East Flatbush Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library has opened a satellite location at the Brookdale Hospital.

For at least a year, patrons of the library have had to go far to check out books and take advantage of services. The branch on Church Avenue has been undergoing capital improvements for about a year. Patrons have only been able to check out books through a bookmobile on Mondays and Wednesdays.

With the satellite location, they can access an array of services.

The library plans to move back into its old spot when construction wraps up in a year and a half.
