Currently under construction and expected to open at the end of 2019, the Greenpoint Library and Environmental Education Center will be a 15,000 sf community library and hub for environmental awareness, activism, and education in the Brooklyn Public Library system. Program elements include reading rooms; dry/wet eco-labs; community event space and meeting rooms; staff spaces, and an extensive outdoor space. Landscapes will be integrated into the building on three levels - bioswale and rock outcroppings at the street, a reading garden on the second, and a green roof on the third.
