The Countee Cullen Branch is named for poet and teacher Countee Cullen (1903-1946), an important figure of the Harlem Renaissance and the library's friend and neighbor. The library occupies the former site of the mansion of A'lelia Walker, daughter of the beauty products tycoon whose home became a gathering place for artists and writers during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s. The library is wheelchair accessible.

The branch is home to the James Weldon Johnson Reference Collection for children and the African-American/Black Culture reference collection.
