Visit the Brentwood Library

The Brentwood Library, known as the ‘crown jewel’ of the city, was established as a city library in 1983. At that time, there were a few shelves of paperbacks in a dry cleaner’s shop. It has grown significantly.

In fact, the library, owned and operated by the City of Brentwood, has proved to be so popular that an expansion and renovation project was completed in June 2009. This expansion created a state-of-the-art 55,000-square-foot facility holding more than 150,000 collection items, 120 computers, and many welcoming spaces for readers and learners. The project included a new children’s wing that provides space for children’s theater productions and story time events. It also added a larger audiovisual area and several small meeting rooms equipped with computers and big screens for mini-conferences.

Every Brentwood resident or property owner has free borrowing privileges at the library, which in addition to books, also offers audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs and reference databases. A large collection of newspapers and magazines is also available.

The library is one of the busiest in Tennessee with more than 1,000 visitors daily. It has been recognized as one of the premier public libraries in the state and was named one of the nation’s Top 10 Libraries for Children by
