North Brookfield, Massachusetts
The addition and renovations to the historic 1890 Haston Free Public Library restore the original library and provide much-needed extra space for expanded library services.
Located on a tight site with limited room for expansion, the Haston Free Public Library project was a challenge. Careful planning allowed for the building of an addition that includes a new accessible entrance, elevator, and new bookstack areas. Circulation and reading spaces are also improved, taking advantage of the distinct historic ambience while bringing library services up to date.
