Building Renovation Project 2001-2003

Since 1913, the residents of Brockton have been well served by the downtown library, but renovation became necessary due to the changing nature of library services and the growth of the city.

The $12.1 million renovation began July 1, 2001 and the library was reopened July 15, 2003.  The building is now completly handicapped accessible, has two elevators and Internet computers.

The library renovation doubled the previous floor space to 47,000 square feet and increased the seating capacity from 64 to 174.  Many features of the current building - the carved woodwork, the marble foyer, the WPA mural - were preserved and restored. 

The library also includes special rooms for tutoring, quiet study, group study and public meetings.
