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 an addition that includes a new accessible entrance, elevator, and new bookstack areas. Circulation and reading spaces improved by taking advantage of the distinct historic ambience while bringing library services up to date.
