Parkgate Branch

The beautiful Parkgate Branch Library is located near Deep Cove. With many cozy reading spaces including a fireplace area, the branch also features a quiet study room, public computer terminals, a well-stocked children’s and teen’s area, and a great selection of books, music, movies and much more. Throughout the year we offer story times and events for children as well as computer training and other programs for adults. Need a meeting room?
