The renovation of the 117-year-old 125th Street Library will improve infrastructure and enhance service for all patrons. The 14,000-square-foot branch will get a remodel of its third floor (which has been inaccessible for decades); create dedicated and flexible spaces for programming; add individual reading areas for adults, children, and teens; and receive essential upgrades throughout including a new elevator, restrooms, and technology updates. The library is expected to open in spring 2024.
