According to Community Board 6, work goes on (and on) at the Park Slope Library Branch at Sixth Avenue and Ninth Street, which first closed for renovations way back in 2009. The Brooklyn Public Library reported that the support structures on the main floor were more deteriorated than expected, so the scope of the work has expanded. The “moat” walls at the perimeter of the building were also restored to ensure that the secondary means of egress was in good repair. The work also includes HVAC upgrades, new lighting, floors, furniture and finishes, and a new public service model with self checking. The renovation should wrap in late spring or summer, and a re-opening is anticipated in the fall.
