The West New Brighton Branch was first established in 1913 as a home station at 1006 Castleton Avenue under the Extension Division of The New York Public Library. In 1918 it was moved to 85 State Street as a sub-branch. The present building, located at 976 Castleton Avenue, opened its doors on April 1, 1933.
