We proudly offer a variety of regular monthly programs and special events for children and adults that are culturally enriching and that are intended to inspire all ages to develop a love of reading, while showcasing local artists, musicians, and writers.  Please click on the "Programs" link to see a list of current offerings and upcoming events.

C hildren’s Wing Expansion Project.

Have you heard? Brockway Memorial Library has embarked on a fundraising campaign to expand and improve the children’s wing, which will enable us to extend our current youth and family offerings, and relieve our space issues.

 

Please Donate to our Building Fund today and help make our dream of a Children’s Room Expansion a reality! Have your child's name placed in a special way in the new wing!   Click here to learn more.

 

Expansion Update

 

 

When will the Library break ground on the new Children’s Wing?

The Library cannot begin active construction until the completion of the Village Sewer Project as the Library’s septic tank and drain field lay within the proposed construction site.   In the meantime, we have begun the formal process of awarding a design/build contract through the Village so that we are ready to break ground early next year. A construction firm should be selected by early December 2016.

 

How much money has the Library raised for this project? How much will this really cost?

To date we have raised over $275,000 for our Building Fund!  In May, a new architectural study was completed to get a current cost estimate.  Prices have increased since we first had an estimate provided in 2013 and the Library will need more money than anticipated.   The Library Board formally approached Council on June 7, 2016 to confirm the scope of the project and to request additional funding.   The Village Council agreed to support this project and allocated $350,000 to our fund. In September of 2016, the Library Director applied for a Public Library Construction Grant from the State Library of Florida to supplement the costs of construction. The award will be announced in July of 2017, but construction is able begin before that.

 

How long will the construction take to complete the building project?

We expect construction to be completed in less than a year from the time of groundbreaking, but we will provide a more detailed construction schedule from the design/build contractor as soon as it is available. The Library and Village are committed to moving as expeditiously as possible through the contract and construction phases of this project. 

 

How will this project affect Library services?

The Library intends to continue to function throughout the construction of the new wing.  There are no plans to alter children’s programming, although some events may be moved to a different location in the library or off-site, if necessary.
