The Town of Greece and the Library Board are pleased to announce plans for an expansion of the Children’s Library Section at the Main Library Branch, 2 Vince Tofany Boulevard.

The proposed expansion would double the footprint of the current Children’s Library, adding 3,300 square feet of space and will include a children’s programming room and many new amenities for our youngest residents, their parents and caregivers.

The library is nearly 20 years old, the final payment on the building was made this year. The age of the building and the growth of the town have shown increased numbers of patrons visiting the library and programming numbers, in particular the children’s programs have been steadily increasing.

“There will be no borrowing to support this project. We have applied for a grant to offset some of the project costs and the remainder of the funds will be paid in cash as a result of careful planning and budgeting,” Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich said.

Planning is in the early stages. Residents are encouraged to weigh in on any suggestions they may have for ways to enhance the Children’s Library space. Greece residents are invited to visit Bill Reilich Greece Town Supervisor’s Facebook Page to make suggestions and share ideas of things they may like to see at the library. Comment cards will also be available at the Main Information Desk at the library as well. Once resident input is received, a conceptual design will be put in place and the progress will be shared with residents throughout the entire process.
