Why Did We Build a New McAuliffe Branch Library?
- 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.
