Greenpoint Library Closing For Construction—But A New Library Is On The Way!
The Greenpoint Library (107 Norman Ave) is closing for reconstruction at the end of the day on Friday, June 30. With $5 million in funds from the GCEF and more than $6 million from the Brooklyn Public Library, a larger, more modern, and truly green Greenpoint Library and Environmental Education Center is coming, along with expanded programs and activities. Construction is expected to be complete at the end of 2018. The original Greenpoint Library was constructed in 1906 and only replaced once in the 70’s due to deterioration.
Bookmobile service will be provided in front of the library every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 am to 4 pm, beginning Thursday, July 6. While Greenpoint Library is closed, you can visit other nearby branches:
