The Brooklyn Public Library is selling the Carnegie building on Fourth Avenue and will move to a planned building by a developer.
According to The Daily News, the Pacific Street Library branch would remain open until the new building was completed in 2016.
The plan, which would involve a new building by Two Trees, will have to be approved by the City Council.
The Pacific Street Library branch—which was the first Carnegie Branch to open in Brooklyn in 1904—along with 17 others donated by the tycoon are in need of $230 million in repairs, The News reports.
Although the move will not happen immediately, neighbors and politicians want to start planning right away.
If you are interested in hearing more about the future of the Pacific Street Library, come tonight, Tuesday, March 5th at 6:30 p.m. for a meeting with City Councilmember Steve Levin, State Assemblymember Joan Millman, and State Senator Velmanette Montgomery.
The meeting will take place at YWCA at 30 Third Avenue (in the Community Room) at Atlantic Avenue.
To RSVP or for more details, contact Ashley Thompson, Councilmember Levin’s chief of staff, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.788.7368.
