Amenities


The predecessor to Paerdegat Library opened in 1950 in the abandoned laundry of the Glenwood Project. The popularity of the library-in-a-laundry made it clear that the community needed its own branch, and in the early 1960s, Paerdegat opened at its current location on East 59th Street, where it continues to serve patrons to this day.
