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):

  • 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.
