The long-awaited Greenpoint Library and Environmental Education Center is officially opening for limited lobby service on Tuesday, October 20.
The brand-new site will serve as both a full-service library and a community hub for environmental awareness, activism and education.
The 15,000-square-foot library doubles the size of the previous building, and provides significantly enlarged indoor and outdoor spaces, according to Brooklyn Public Library.
Some of the many new amenities include a gardened reading deck, windows that act as sun dials and a cistern to collect rainwater for the rooftop demonstration garden.
Inside the library, there are adult, young adult and children’s reading rooms, as well as collection spaces, community spaces and lab spaces. You’ll also find event spaces, lounge seating, small meeting rooms and staff spaces.
