The Worcester Public Library has six branches:
Opened in 1914, the former Greendale Branch was renamed in 1994 to honor Frances Perkins who grew up in Worcester and was the first woman cabinet member, serving as Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor.
Since the opening of the Great Brook Valley Branch Library in 1981, its convenient location has been serving the Great Brook Valley housing project apartment development residents as well as the general public.
Thanks are due to the Worcester Housing Authority which provides the library with space in a renovated townhouse.
The One City, One Library branches are public library branches housed in four Worcester Public Elementary Schools.
The branches are open to everyone during public hours.
