On October 16, 2019, Johnson Roberts Associates joined local residents and officials to break ground on the new Hadley Public Library. The project is funded in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) Massachusetts Public Library Construction Program (MPLCP).
The new building will take the place of the original Goodwin Memorial Library which was built in 1902. The new library sits on a site directly behind the current building. The design will replace the current three–story building with an accessible one floor space that is double the size and features a large multipurpose meeting room, dedicated spaces for children and teens, and updated technology to meet the needs of Hadley’s residents.
