Macon Library, located in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant, reopens after extensive renovation on June 19. Aside from taking advantage of all of Brooklyn Public Library’s usual resources at this beautifully-restored library, you can now do even more at the new Macon:

  • Use a public computer to access, the number one online source for family history information.
  • Explore the new African American Heritage Center’s collection of historic photographs, maps and books.
  • Learn more about Bed-Stuy—a neighborhood that has influenced the likes of Jackie Robinson, Spike Lee and Jay-Z—through a special collection and an audio walking tour. 


Come to our grand opening festivities on June 19 at 2 PM; visit our website for more information.
