Adorned inside and out with several murals and housing warm and welcoming areas for children, teens and adults, the Arnett Branch Library is located in the 19th Ward of Rochester, NY at 310 Arnett Boulevard. A large parking lot is adjacent to the building. The library is handicapped accessible.

Named the 2015 Library of the Year by the Rochester Regional Library Council, the library has been described this way:

This is truly a neighborhood library, with outreach to the diverse population in our corner of the city. There are story times, homework help, Lego club, a teen center, live music events, computer resources, literacy volunteers, and of course, books to read, reference help, DVDs and music. Most of all, there is a staff of helpful and welcoming librarians. The library even has a table at our local farmer’s market and Square Fair. Over the twenty-plus years I have lived in this neighborhood, I have never seen the Library more vital and active and utilized.
