Brookdale Library building project



About the project

Brookdale Library opened for service in 1981. It was the first library built for the Brooklyn Center community. The library underwent a major renovation and expansion in 2002-03 and reopened in 2004 in its current location. The library is part of a larger complex that houses district courts and a Hennepin County service center.

Planning is underway for a 2026 building remodel. The project will update the current library space and make it more efficient and patron friendly.
