10. You Can Borrow More Than Books

The Welcome Services team at The Center for Brooklyn History aims to ensure that all visitors feel like they belong. In addition to preserving the stories of Brooklyn’s past, CBH serves as a community resource, helping to provide community members with the tools they need to make history. At the Community Corner, visitors can learn about all of the services offered through the Brooklyn Public Library system. These include access to free craft supplies on the Craft Cart, Harm Reduction supplies like baby wipes, bandages, sunscreen, and more, as well as tools you can borrow to help enhance your experience at the Center for Brooklyn History such as iPads with Bloomberg Connects pre-downloaded, magnifying glasses, headsets, and fidget toys.
