Letter from the Director

Dear Community —

The Scarsdale Public Library has moved its operations to Library Loft at Supply Field, the temporary facility that will house library services while the Olmsted Road library is closed for renovation for the next 18 months-2 years. .

Some services and programs will continue at the smaller space, with hours reduced at times to accommodate parking for field users. Some programs will be held at other sites — information on this will come soon in another e-blast.

A team of Village professionals, consultants and community leaders remains focused on the Library’s improvement project that will transform our library for generations to come. Our dream to modernize this facility is about to be realized! We will be improving our flexibility, our technology and will be fully accessible to all users.

I am grateful for the support from this community helping us remain your central hub for lifelong learning.


Elizabeth Bermel, Library Director
