Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Brighton Place Library is an independent library and community resource located in Tonawanda, NY at 999 Brighton Road. We offer many exciting programs and events for children, teens, and adults. Our programs are free and parking is available.

In October 2005, an article appeared in the Buffalo News about a grass-roots effort to save the Brighton Library. Soon after, more dedicated volunteers committed themselves to safeguarding this valuable community resource.

A fund raiser was quickly pulled together to raise money for the utilities and it was clear through the success of this event that this important undertaking had the support of many town residents.

Since that time, a non-profit corporation has been formed, officers have been chosen and an occupancy agreement has been arranged with the Town of Tonawanda, which enabled the group to gain ownership of the contents and remaining book collection of the former library. That collection, now supplemented by hundreds of books we have since purchased, along with many hours of hard work, some fresh paint and exciting plans for the future have all come together in Brighton Place.

Our mission is to provide a community place for the residents of the Town of Tonawanda and surrounding area where they can access books, magazines, computers, DVD's and other forms of educational and cultural opportunities that will enhance their lives. The facility will also serve as a meeting area, resource center and place to study for people of all ages.
