Help Design The New Sunset Park Library

Rendering via

Join a public design meeting tomorrow, April 20 from 6pm to 8pm to help decide the future of the Sunset Park Library.

NYC Council Member Carlos Menchaca (District 38) sent out an announcement last week inviting the public to attend the Sunset Park New Library Design Forum taking place Thursday evening at the library at 5108 4th Avenue (at 51st Street).

Brooklyn Public Library and the Fifth Avenue Committee are teaming up to build a bigger and better library—nearly doubling its size! They are inviting the public’s feedback to help determine how the new facility should be designed.

The new library will be 21,000 square feet, topped by 49 units of permanent affordable housing—including 9 units reserved for survivors of domestic violence.

Spanish and Chinese translations will be available at the meeting, and childcare and snacks will be provided.

  1. The existing library is terrible, all I can say is there’s nothing better like a brick building and lots of warmth inside, like the ole libraries used to be, now they have these ice cold tile floors, very bright lights, cold loud colored painted walls, no warmth at all, even the buildings have such awful looking windows, and different material, every thing is built modern no real art is put into anything today just sloppy building, so asking the public instead of using good judgment will only produce another nasty library.
