a few of the reasons why Brooklyn rocks can be found in the "HEART  OF Brooklyn" 

; the group  of cutural and arts institutions that include the Brooklyn Library!

 

Check out the EBM site: http://www.ondemandbooks.com/brooklyn-public-library/

EBM’s technology draws books from two sources – in-copyright titles made available by major publishers including HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, McGraw-Hill, Hachette, Macmillan, and O’Reilly, and titles that have fallen into the public domain and are made available as scans through the Google Books program. Now, it is easier than ever before to obtain hard-to-find books at the library.
