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.

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.
