Brooklyn Public Library, Sunset Park Branch honored with AIA NYS Excelsior Award

Mitchell Giurgola is honored to announce that the Brooklyn Public Library, Sunset Park Branch, was awarded a 2024 AIA NYS Excelsior Award. The Sunset Park Library Branch is one of the Brooklyn Public Library’s busiest locations, serving a community that includes many non-native English speakers, students, families, and seniors. With a space too small and outdated to adequately address the needs of its patrons, Brooklyn Public Library partnered with the Fifth Avenue Committee to develop a new, greatly expanded library and affordable housing site. The space is outfitted for the modern era, with the collections, technology, and flexible space needed to accommodate many uses and serve a large, diverse group of patrons.
