Roosevelt Public Library

Library Expansion

In 2007, construction began on the property adjacent to the library at 27 W. Fulton Avenue.  The plan consisted of connecting a 20,000 sq. ft. building to the current 9,813 sq. ft. library.  Upon its completion in 2012, the modern facility featured many new and improved services including:

  • Wireless internet capability throughout the building
  • A 275 seat auditorium  for library special events, meetings, cultural celebrations, and film screenings
  • Gallery space for public artist exhibitions
  • Dedicated computer room with 21 terminals for public access
  • A 100 seat multi-purpose space that can be divided into four smaller meeting rooms
  • Dedicated teen center
  • Additional space for Children’s, Young Adult, and Adult collections
  • Additional space for Reference, CD’s, DVD’s, and the Black Heritage Collection
