Parking Lot Expansion and Grounds Enhancements

Visiting the Albert Wisner Public Library is now easier and safer.  We have added 58 more spots, for a total of 117 parking spaces including 5 handicapped spots.  This project, funded in part with NYS Public Library Construction Grant funds, is the Library Board’s response to the growing need for parking since the Library opened in November of 2009.  It will provide safe access to the Library for popular programs and services, eliminating the need for parking along McFarland Drive.  A fully-accessible patio and performance area with outside seating, as well as a pathway with solar lighting leading to Memorial Park, are being completed. They will be open to the public in the spring of 2018.  This new area will include tables and umbrellas provided by the Library Foundation for use when the area is not being used for Library programs and performances.

This project is a partnership with the Library and the Village of Warwick. Rules for use of the parking lot will be established by the Village and posted in the lot.  For more information, please contact Library Director, Rosemary Cooper at rcooper@rcls.org or 845-986-1047, ext. 6.
