Starting in mid-to-late 2021, Millburn Library will start major renovations to upgrade key areas inside the building, including the Children’s Room, a relocated Teen Area, new service desks, as well as other aesthetic changes that will benefit the community for years to come. For a FAQ of what will be available during the closure, click here.
The Children’s area will expand by nearly 20%, and receive new seating, additional shelving, and an upgraded design. Scroll down further to see renderings of the future space.
The new Teen Space will benefit our after-school teen patrons, allowing collaboration & socialization in an area of their own. It will be located under the mezzanine in an enclosed room, allowing for better sound control and a better library experience for all, especially those seeking a quiet place to study and relax. The existing Teen area, by our beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, will be revamped into a comfortable seating lounge overlooking the South Mountain Reservation.
Final features include new service desks for Circulation & Information, as well as new carpeting, lighting, and other changes.
