Brooklyn Public Library
20,000 SF

The Sunset Park Library Branch is one of the Brooklyn Public Library’s busiest locations, serving a diverse community including 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 With a space too small and outdated to adequately address the needs of its patrons, Brooklyn Public Library partnered with the Fifth Avenue Committee to develop a new, greatly expanded library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. Mitchell Giurgola is currently working on the fit-out of the library that will occupy more than 20,000 SF of the new building. The space will be 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.
