The Central Brevard Library and Reference Center in Cocoa has the largest collection, which began in 1989
when the Brevard Genealogical Society was given room to house their materials. In 2002, the library received the entire contents of the genealogy collection amassed by Brevard Community College (now known as the Eastern Florida State College). The
Central Brevard Library's genealogy department is staffed Monday through Saturday, 9 AM-5 PM and offers the assistance of an experienced genealogist. It is housed on the second floor of the library along with the Brevard County Historical Commission.
The collection includes the county's earliest newspapers as well as the early Brevard County Courthouse records. Materials from the library's collection are not available on interlibrary loan but are loaned to other branches within the system. The library
also offers classes on various genealogical topics and hosts the Brevard Genealogical Society's extensive Beginning Genealogy Class.
