About This Location

The newest library in the BCPL system opened to the public on February 13, 2020. The location of the new branch was purposefully selected to be near the elementary school to make library resources readily available and to help facilitate future collaborations. Approximately 7,600 square feet, the building is designed to be highly flexible to allow for purpose-based configurations to accommodate special events and different community needs as they evolve over time. Perhaps most notable and beneficial to the community, the new location features a 24-hour access vestibule that will allow the community to enjoy internet access and a selection of books and movies for checkout even when the main building is closed.
