After More Than 2 Years of Closure, The Saratoga Library Prepares for Reopening

The library closed in November 2020 for an HVAC replacement and is finally ready to serve the Ocean Hill-Brownsville community again.

After closing for repairs and upgrades in November 2020, Saratoga Library will reopen on Monday, Feb. 13.

During the closure, Saratoga Library's children's and young adult collections expanded. The library also installed a new heating and cooling system, made updates to the building's interior and exterior and added a book drop for after-hours returns.

There will be more exciting improvements in the future, including a furniture refresh and a brand new teen tech center, the BPL team announced, but they wanted to open to the public as soon as possible.

When the branch reopens, patrons may once again place holds for pickup at Saratoga Library. Starting on Feb. 13, the branch hours will be:

  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 10:00am-6:00pm
  • Tuesday: 1:00pm-8:00pm
  • Thursday: 10:00am-8:00pm
  • Saturday: 10:00am-5:00pm

The Saratoga Library is located at 8 Thomas S. Boyland St.
