Residents of Media, PA have had a front row seat to the week-long demolition of the Media-Upper Providence Free Library. We’ve been able to watch the entire building be demolished, and also see just how helpful dumpster rentals really are during construction projects. It’s very exciting to see the beginnings of a brand new building in the area.

In order to accommodate more traffic and improve accessibility as well as public safety, the new library will be a 10,000 square foot, two-story building. The new design will feature an elevator, ADA compliant entrances and restrooms, designated parking, free Wi-Fi, and energy efficient lighting and windows. Additionally, this new design will be flexible so that future changes can easily be made to better accommodate changes in the way the public uses the library.

The History of the Library

The library was founded by the Woman’s Club of Media in 1901 and the building you saw at the beginning of this video was the result of connecting five different buildings over the course of 50 years. The library is a non-profit organization responsible for its own operation. It serves 9,000 active cardholders and is visited by over 100,000 patrons each year. In the past five years alone, the library has been busier than the previous ten — which indicates that usage is actually growing.

For more information on this project, you can visit the Media-Upper Providence Free Library website. You can also see the 3D design for the future library here.
