Grafton Public Library - 2022
DAS provided Owner's Project Management services for the expansion and new addition to the Grafton Public Library in Grafton, MA.
The project consisted of preserving the front section of the circa-1928 library with an entrance on the Grafton Common. The upper level includes the historic main reading room, showcasing original Palladian windows and woodwork, as well as meeting rooms, collections and services for adults. The lower level consists of youth services space and collections, including a children’s program room, a teen-tween program and gaming rooms, several tutoring rooms, and mechanical and electrical equipment rooms. This expansion provides updated spaces found in modern libraries including a large community meeting room, study rooms, tutoring spaces, teen and tween areas, a children program room, local history room, Friends of the Library book sale space, expanded areas for nonfiction and fiction collection and a patio.
