Lincoln Branch

Opening on its current site in 1994, the Lincoln Branch provides a wide range of traditional and innovative library services to its ethnically diverse patron population. As one of the largest city branch libraries with over 11,800 square feet of space, it hosts a wide collection of materials including books, movies, music, and audiobooks in a wide variety of genres. Lincoln Branch is also home to the largest collections of books and films in Spanish in the Rochester Public Library system and many of its staff members are bi-lingual.
