Coolidge Corner (Sussman House)

Sussman House
50 Pleasant St.
Brookline, MA 02446

The Coolidge Corner Library is currently closed for renovation. However, we’ve opened a mini Library at the Sussman House where you can return books, pick up holds and museum passes, and browse a very limited selection of popular books and movies.

The Sussman House is located across the street from the Coolidge Corner Library — a block and a half from Coolidge Corner on Pleasant Street.

From the west: Take Beacon Street toward Boston. After the intersection of Harvard and Beacon take first left across the Green Line tracks and turn left back onto Beacon Street, and immediately get into the right lane. Take first right onto Pleasant Street. The Sussman House is roughly a block up on the right.

From the east (Boston): Take Beacon Street west through Kenmore Square. Turn right onto Pleasant Street (if you reach Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner, you’ve gone too far). The Sussman House is roughly a block up on the right.

Parking: The only parking available at the Sussman House is street-level, metered parking.

Handicap parking: There are two handicap parking spots available at the Coolidge Corner Library (31 Pleasant St.). There is one handicap space on the street directly in front of the main entrance. There is another handicap space near the rear of the building with a long ramp up to the street and the front entrance.
