History of the Brooklyn Branch
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 not suitable as a Jackson District Library building. The Brooklyn Library
board, however, purchased the US Post Office building in Brooklyn which was remodeled to become Jackson
District Library’s newest branch in 1998.
