Watch it now on the town’s Vimeo channel!

Town Supervisor Adam Bello, Library Board President Stephanie Squicciarini, and several others took part in a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new library project yesterday, April 23, at Town Hall. After the speeches, many of the people involved in the project went outside and stuck the first shovels in the dirt, marking the beginning of construction on the new building. The centralized Irondequoit Library is expected to open in Fall 2015.

There will be a meeting at the Town Hall in the Broderick Room on Tuesday, February 25 at 7 pm.  At this meeting residents will get a chance to contribute to the design of the new building by telling us what they most want to see in their new library.  Members of the design team, library board, library staff and town government will be present to hear what is most important to you. We are working on other avenues for residents to contribute but this is a terrific opportunity for you to discuss your hopes for the future of library services in Irondequoit.  Please attend and tell us what you want!
