Brooklyn, NY -- a Family Connection

I just received an email from the Brooklyn, NY, Public Library, talking about the centennial of its Brownsville Branch. This happens to be a branch that was totally devoted to children's materials, and the pictures with the article will make clear why it was needed.

The family connection? My Aunt Ruth McEvoy worked for the Brooklyn Public Library, in children's services, in the middle of the last century. The pictures below are from one of her old photo albums, and at least one of the pictures shows the Brownsville branch.

 





This is the Brownsville Branch, from the article!
