Scarsdale Public Library

The renovation and expansion of the Scarsdale Public Library will provide optimal utilization of the facility, which dates back to 1951. The renovation and expansion is designed to accommodate the shifting needs of the Scarsdale community, improve the library experience, and better fulfill the Library’s mission in light of new developments in technology, trends in library services, and a change in user preferences. To bring the Library to the 21st Century, the design team explored options to allow a greater amount of flexibility at all levels of programming: collection size, number of seats and computer stations, and technological infrastructure. Given the Village’s reliance on the library for public meeting space, additional and more flexible spaces are a top priority. The addition of a technology center and the reconfiguration of the outmoded circulation desk into smaller, distributed locations will allow for better researching opportunities and greater customer contact and service.
