The New York Public Library’s West New Brighton Branch To Close Until September For Building Improvements


As part of The New York Public Library’s continuing efforts to improve our local branches, the West New Brighton Library in Staten Island will be closed temporarily beginning Monday, August 12th to facilitate an exterior restoration. The branch is scheduled to reopen in September 2013. 

Patrons of the West New Brighton Library are encouraged to use either the Port Richmond Library located at 75 Bennett Street at Heberton Avenue. Patrons can also use the Stapleton Library located at 132 Canal Street at Wright Street.  All holds originally set for pickup at the West New Brighton Library will be delivered to the Port Richmond Library for the duration of this upgrade. 
The Library appreciates our patrons for their cooperation while these important improvements are made and apologizes for any inconvenience.
