Why Did We Build a New McAuliffe Branch Library?

Here is why the Framingham Library Trustees applied for a 2010-2011 Construction Grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) (which was provisionally granted in 2012):

  • Framingham had outgrown the original McAuliffe Branch Library over a decade ago.
  • Branch libraries were eligible for funding in this grant round.
  • Framingham has received about 50% of the cost of acquiring land and building a new Branch Library from the MBLC.
  • The MBLC may not have offered construction grants again for some time, and future grants could have been smaller.
