Why Did We Build a New McAuliffe Branch Library?
- Framingham had outgrown the original McAuliffe Branch Library more than ten years earlier.
- Branch libraries were eligible for funding in the 2010-2011 grant round.
- Framingham would receive funds that would cover 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.
