Brooklyn’s Central Library is an art-deco masterpiece from 1941 that contains over one million books, magazines and multimedia items. The limestone-covered building is shaped like an open book and there are 15 bronze panels above its 50ft-high entrance featuring literary characters like Tom Sawyer and Moby Dick. Free events happen throughout the year, including film screenings, classical concerts and weekly story time for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
