Medford Branch

Floor Plan
Site Plan

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.

Brick with "Your special message here" engraved on it

Help us pave the way!

The Patchogue-Medford Friends of the Library are sponsoring this fundraiser for the construction and maintenance of the Medford Branch Library.

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!)

Medford Library Made Possible In Part By:


We’re ready!

We are putting the finishing touches on the branch to get it ready to open. The grand opening and ribbon cutting will take place on Tuesday June 11, 2024 from 4-7 pm. The Board of Trustees of the Patchogue Medford Library cordially invite you to attend, located at 2151 Horseblock Road, Medford NY 11763, inside the Medford Athletic Complex. 

Presentations to start promptly at 4:30 PM. This event will be held rain or shine. All are welcome!

We can’t wait to celebrate with you! Enjoy refreshments, children’s activities, music and lots more. Join your neighbors to mark this momentous occasion for our community!

Regular hours of the Library branch will follow starting on Wednesday, June 12, 2024 from 10 AM to 8 PM.


Suffolk County Water Authority installed water at the street! Today, the plumber is connecting the water to the Library building. We have been waiting a VERY long time for this to happen, and we are finally reaching this milestone. Stay tuned!

Winter 2023-24

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.

Fall 2023

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.
