South Hadley Public Library
South Hadley, MA - 2014
DAS was the Owner's Project Manager for this project in South Hadley, MA.
The new library moved to Main Street, overlooking the Connecticut River, the Holyoke Dam and America's first navigable canal. It is designed to recall South Hadley's heritage as a mill town, combining traditional mill architecture with modern library design while reconnecting the community to the river. The library is a two story, masonry and steel building with larger windows facing south towards the falls and river. The building is organized to provide an easy to use facility for both patrons and staff. The South Hadley Public Library is LEED Silver certified.
