Greenfield Public Library in Design Development

Johnson Roberts has moved into the design development phase for the new Greenfield Public Library. This new, two-story, 24,000 square foot facility will replace the current library, which has been housed since 1909 in the 1797 Leavitt-Hovey House, designed by Asher Benjamin, and later owned by local merchant George Hovey.

The new facility will provide expanded space for the adults and children’s departments, resolve accessibility issues that have troubled the current building for years, and provide space for teens, which has been lacking in the current facility. The proposed design will also provide much needed meeting, study, and reading spaces, expanded collections, and vastly improved workflows for staff.
