Windsor Terrace Library’s Green Roof Is Complete


WINDSOR TERRACE — Back in 2014 residents voted to fund a green roof for the Windsor Terrace Library as a priority, and Council member Brad Lander allocated $250,000 in funding through the participatory budget process (PBNYC). The project began in March, when library closed for about a month, and is now finally complete.

The 7,000 square foot roof is covered with shrubs, perennial ground-covers, and ornamental grasses. The new habitat for bees and insects also helps reduce storm water runoff helping keep those combined sewers e have from overflowing.

Other library related projects that have been recently funded through participatory budgeting in Council District 39 are:

Other funded but not yet constructed projects include:

  • Overnight book drops at Carroll Gardens, Windsor Terrace, and Borough Park Libraries.
  • A new teen space at Carroll Gardens Library.

  1. Just in time for the demolition and replacement with an eight-story affordable apartment building. What goes around, comes around.
