Exciting News!

The BPL Outdoors project has started! 
We broke ground on
Monday, January 22, 2024. 
As a result, there are some changes in library operations.  For patron safety, during construction, the rear entrance will be closed. Rear book drops will also be closed.  The front entrance on Pondfield Road will be open, as will the front book drops. Parking remains available on Library Lane.  The construction is expected to be completed by mid-May 2024. We look forward to welcoming you to our new outdoor space this spring. 

We thank FOBPL and all donors who made this project possible. FOBPL continues to accept donations for the project.
Visit fobpl.org/outdoor for more information.
