BOERUM HILL – Brooklyn Public Library’s Pacific Branch was scheduled to open this month after renovations, but it has been delayed until July after discovering additional abatement work was needed.
BPL had this to say: “As we put the finishing touches on an improved Pacific Library, we are excited to be able to provide area residents with new features, including ADA compliant bathrooms, new air conditioning, and revitalized spaces with energy-efficient lighting and fresh paint. We appreciate the community’s patience and look forward to opening day in July.
The building, located on 25 4th Ave on Pacific Street, is 114 years old. Aside from renovations and safety improvements, a ramp will also be installed to improve access to the building.
During the closure, the bookmobile will visit the Pacific Library branch on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am to 4pm. The BPL recommends library patrons visit other nearby branches, including the Central Library (10 Grand Army Plaza), Park Slope (431 6th Ave.), Brooklyn Heights (109 Remsen St.), and Walt Whitman (93 St. Edwards St.).
