Construction has begun!
After years of planning, we are underway! It requires a little imagination to see our future home that will soon offer a sun- filled reading gallery, a toddler area, dedicated children’s program space, additional multi-purpose rooms, office suites, technology room, a makers space, a Teen Room, a cafe, and don’t forget the books! We hope these images help you ‘see’ what’s to come!
Recently, the pile driver installed the foundational pilons to support the addition, and interior demolition has opened up our space providing something of a blank slate. This month, the Building Committee has been working with the Library’s architect to specify furniture, such as the stacks for our excellent collection, flexible worktables, comfortable seating, stackable chairs for events, and so on. All selections are made with a careful eye to utility, variety, value, comfort and durability.
The Building Committee offers an extra layer of detailed oversight, working closely with the exceptional professional team and reporting to the Library Board and Village Board-- and also to you, the community. Please check out the Project Binder, available on our website, with updated documents about the project. Meanwhile, the Library Loft at Supply Field offers a comfortable temporary home during construction. Thank you for your patience, support and trust as we move forward every day!
Campaign for Excellence
Scarsdale Public Library has begun an essential transformation. A light-filled entrance, a welcoming, open main reading room, and a dramatic new glass-enclosed reading gallery will open the library out to the park with views of the pond and beyond.
The Library’s renovation will increase square footage to provide public spaces and services already found in the best libraries of today. Multiple conference and meeting rooms, a business center, and a café will make the library a gathering space for the entire community. Access to historical archives, a dynamic and expanded children’s wing, a separate teen room, and innovative technology will connect the past, the present, and the future of Scarsdale.
The Library Loft at Supply Field
While the Scarsdale Public Library is undergoing it’s transformation, the library has moved into a temporary location. The Library Loft at Supply Field is located at 244 Heathcote Road, just north of the ‘5 Corners’ intersection. Library space is on the 2nd floor of the beige building behind the fields. There is an elevator. Hours and services are limited.
