The Town of Greenfield won a grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) to build a much-needed new library building. The current library lacks accessibility, space, and technology needed to fully serve the community. The MBLC grant is contingent on the Town approving a funding match. In November 2019, the Greenfield residents voted to pass a ballot providing funding for the new library. Johnson Roberts Associates is excited to begin work with the Town on this new project.
