Branch History

The library formed in Brooklyn in 1918 later became part of the Jackson County Library. With the formation of the District, the Brooklyn Library decided to remain independent with some service and materials provided by Jackson District Library. The building, a former church, was unfortunately not suitable as a library building. The Brooklyn Library board purchased the former US Post Office building in Brooklyn which was remodeled to become Jackson District Library’s newest branch in 1998.

In late 2019, JDL’s staff decided that it was time to expand the branch as the community was out growing the small building. In fall of 2020, after a national shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, ground was broken and the building project began. Fast forward to August 2021 when the community of Brooklyn and the County of Jackson were presented with a branch that doubled in size, was outfitted with the latest technology, included a youth area, an adult area and a meeting room large enough to accommodate 50 visitors at one time.
