Brockton: Brockton Public Library

Established in temporary quarters in 1867, the Brockton Public Library was built in 1913 with a gift of $110,000 from industrialist Andrew Carnegie and his wishes that “it prove a fountain from which blessed waters flow.” The Library operates from its Beaux Art Style Main Library, renovated extensively in 2003, and two additional branches. A broad array of programs and services are offered to a diverse population, including ESL classes and the American Immigration Dialogue Series, well-regarded community forums.
