Rapid population growth and a desire to provide extended services to the community motivated the Library Board to construct a new 58,000 square foot municipal library. The project was also a catalyst for redevelopment in the City of Saratoga Springs.
This new, three-story library is designed to bridge the commercial west end of the site and the more residential neighborhood to the east.
The building provides a comfortable library setting and a sense of community with its café, community meeting rooms, and varied study spaces.
