There’s a library in Medford?
Not yet! The Medford Branch is a work in progress. It will be an 11,000 square foot branch with 5,500 sq feet of finished space, providing increased access to library services for Patchogue-Medford residents.
Where is it going to be?
The Medford Branch will be located in the Medford Athletic Complex on Horseblock Road.
When will it be done?
Construction began in March 2022, and is expected to be completed by Spring 2024.
I have questions/comments/concerns.
We want to hear from you! Please contact the Library’s director, Danielle Paisley.
Help us pave the way!
Buy a brick and leave a lasting legacy on the patio of the Medford Branch Library.
Perhaps you would like to memorialize a loved one or thank a teacher? Maybe you would like to share a book title or quote from your favorite author?
These pavers will display your family, club, or group name and/or a personalized message. Businesses are welcome to participate as well to show their support of the Library! (and psst … a personalized brick would certainly make a unique gift!)
The parking lot is finished and all sidewalks and ramps have been installed. We are now awaiting approval from Suffolk County to connect the gas, water and fiber needed to run the building. As a reminder, the Library leases the land at no cost from the Town of Brookhaven, but has covered the costs of construction through donations, grants and the Library’s reserve funds. The Medford Athletic Complex entrance is on Horseblock Rd, a County Rd., that requires a separate permit to connect utilities through it. We are awaiting approval to continue the work. Once the utilities are connected, and all is inspected, we will be able to move into the building and get ready to open. Stay tuned.
Work continues on the Medford Branch of the Patchogue Medford Library. While we hoped to be open by now, the universe has had other plans. The trench has finally been closed alongside the parking lot, now that gas, water and internet conduits have all been installed. We are still waiting for connections to be made–this will take place at Horseblock Rd and may cause some minor delays when it occurs. The contractor continues to create ramps and sidewalks in front of the building. Once that is finished, the parking lot can be installed. Fingers crossed that they are able to complete this work in the next few weeks. We will start moving items into the building once the parking lot is complete, and then will have a better idea of an opening date. Thanks for your patience and please call the Director with any questions.
Every day, we get a little bit closer!
