The Brooklyn Public Library opened its first new branch in 40 years in Dumbo Tuesday.
The new Adams Street library is comprised of 6,500 square-feet full of books and meeting space that overlooks the East River.
The Brooklyn Public Library designed the space with the community in mind. It has dedicated areas for teens and adults, but it is the kids' reading area that takes center stage.
"They should be inspiring spaces that give our patrons kind of a desire to be at their best, to do their best work, to do their best thinking, and to dream big about their future and about their lives," said library president and CEO Linda Johnson
The Adams Street library is now open to the public Monday through Saturday each week.
