Architect's Plan

The Library Board of Trustees will be renovating and expanding the present Library building.  The Library has run out of space needed to continue providing the North Bellmore community with the high-level of service they expect.  With more space, the Library will be able to provide more services and programs in a more inviting atmosphere.  

August 20th 2015
The library's Board of Trustees is proud to announce that they have selected Elite Construction of NY as the Construction Manager for the Library's expansion and renovation project.  The construction Manager will be onsite everyday supervising all work being done.
February 2016
The Library's architect, Ray Beeler, has been diligently working on the final drawings for our expansion/renovation project.  Once these drawings are completed, they must be sent to the New York State Education Department for approval.  The Library's Board of Trustees would like to thank the North Bellmore Board of Education for their cooperation and assistance in the planning of the outdoor spaces around the new library building.  Please contact the Library Director, Thomas Bazzicalupo, at 785-6260 ext.301 if you have any questions about the Library's expansion/renovation project.

We are still looking for a temporary location to house the Library during construction.  Please contact the Library Director Thomas Bazzicalupo at 785-6260 ext 301 if you have any questions about the library expansion.

September 2016
The search continues for a temporary location to house the Library during the
construction. We have looked at some potential options and have a few
more to see. You may have noticed many empty shelves when visiting the Library. All
departments are in the midst of a major weeding process in preparation of
the construction. Many books will be in storage during the construction, so
we need to weed out any outdated, worn, or books that do not circulate.
Please contact Library Director, Thomas Bazzicalupo, at 785-6260 ext. 301 if
you have any questions about the Library’s expansion/renovation project.

November 2016


The Library’s expansion and renovation design has won an award for design excellence from our regional chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The award was presented in October. We are still awaiting final approval of all the architectural plans from the New York State Education Department. We are still searching for a temporary location and continue our major weeding process. Please contact Library Director, Thomas Bazzicalupo, at 785-6260 ext. 301 if you have any questions about the Library’s expansion/renovation project
