The Library Board and staff have been busy making plans for the future, including making a library in Medford. One of the most frequent questions we get is, “When will the Medford Branch will be open?” We are excited to let you know that a timeline is in place to take the project from concept to the finish line. The basic timeline moving forward is approximately 18-24 months. We anticipate sending the design plans to the NY State Education Department by early summer. Once they approve the plans, the bid process begins. The public bidding process will end with awards going to the lowest responsible bidders, and the actual construction process is estimated to take about a year to complete. A virtual public meeting is scheduled for January 25 at 7 pm at which time H2M Architects will walk through the plans for the facility. With a limited budget and many changes and obstacles due to Covid, we move forward taking these challenges into consideration. The link to the virtual call is below. Please call the Library prior to the call if you need technical help connecting. It’s our pleasure to help you. Continue to visit the website for the latest information. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the library director, Danielle Paisley, at 631-654-4700, ext. 300.
