New Kensington library could be last branch built in Brooklyn

“It’s the library of the future — and it may be the last one built in Brooklyn. The sleek $15 million book emporium opened last week on 18th Ave. in Kensington with glass walls, iPads, self-checkout machines, and computers. The environmentally friendly library was designed with large open spaces the public can use for meetings and programs, a construction intended to cater to visitors who are now more likely to gather with friends to study or do research rather than sit alone reading. But the 18,500 square foot branch built on an empty lot is likely to be the last brand new one BPL ever opens as the system starts to head in a new direction.”
