Brooklyn Public Library and
Brooklyn Historical Society merge
BY BEN VERDE
This is one for the history
The Brooklyn Public Library
and the Brooklyn Historical Society
announced on Thursday that
the two iconic borough institutions
will merge together, bringing an
unmatched catalog of Kings County
lore under one unified umbrella.
“By combining with the Brooklyn
Public Library, the Brooklyn
Historical Society immediately extends
our reach to every neighborhood
in the borough,” said Brooklyn
Historical Society President
Deborah Schwartz. “This partnership
also provides BHS with financial
stability, professional resources
and, through our combined
programming, an enhancement and
expansion of everything we do.”
Under the scheme, the lender will
serve as the parent institution of
the Historical Society — assuming
care of all of its archives and programming,
as well as it landmarked
Pierrepont Street building,
The archives of the two institutions
will be combined into one,
with regular library-goers now
having easy access to the society’s
collection of rare Brooklyn-related
texts and artifacts.
The book repository’s massive collection
of over 200,000 photos, books,
maps, and newspapers of historic
Kings County will now be housed in
the Society’s archives, which the library
says will free up much-needed
space for public programing.
The library’s president lauded
the merger as a perfect match that
would prove to be a huge benefit to
their shared missions.
“Together our institutions hold
important collections of material,
manuscripts, and artifacts, vital to
our shared history that we are committed
to make accessible for everyone,”
said Linda Johnson.
The Brooklyn Historical Society,
which was founded in 1863 and has
been housed in the same Pierrepont
Street building since 1881, recently
opened its first satellite location in
a Dumbo waterfront warehouse —
which Johnson indicated in an interview
with the New York Times
will remain there until 2021, after
which the use of the space remains
to be determined.
The news comes after it was revealed
that the library faces a whopping
$247 million backlog in overdue
The two institutions are reportedly
seeking city funding to finalize
the merger, but do not need city
This isn’t the first time the two
institutions have partnered, such
as when the society donated the former
mascot of the Brooklyn Daily
Eagle, and held a contest to come up
with a new name for the bird.
