Library Building Project

O n September 14, 2015, our Mayor and City Council accepted a $9.9 million construction grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Over the next year and a half, we will be renovating the existing Richardson building and constructing an addition that will allow us to enhance our services and provide space for members of our community to gather for educational and recreational purposes.

Our Trustees, through careful investment of the John E. Frizzell endowment, have raised an additional $4 million and will provide another $3 million over the next 20 years to put toward the construction costs for both the renovation and expansion of our library. Our Foundation is fundraising for furniture, fixtures, equipment, and landscaping. If you are interested in donating or helping make our expansion a reality in another way, please visit the Woburn Public Library Foundation.
