Brooklyn Public Library: Interim Brooklyn Heights Library

109 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY

The Interim Brooklyn Heights Library is the temporary library for the Brooklyn Heights community while the 280 Cadman Plaza site is redeveloped. The redevelopment of the City-owned site was made possible by a Request for Proposals issued jointly by the NYC Economic Development Corporation and Brooklyn Public Library (BPL). For the duration of 280 Cadman Plaza West’s construction period, the Interim Library will operate out of 109 Remsen Street, in the renovated social hall of Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral. Normal library hours will be maintained. The Interim Library is designed by LevenBetts.
