Holyoke Public Library Soon-to-Finish $14.5 million Renovation Text Size

The City of Holyoke is set to reopen the Holyoke Public Library for September after $14.5 million in extensive renovations. The library located at 355 Maple St. is 111 years old and has been closed since renovations began in December 2011. In the meantime, a provisional library has been operating in the auditorium on the second floor of City Hall. Library renovations include the construction of an addition expanding library space from 25,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet, repairing water damage from roof leaks, and creating children’s learning areas. Funds for the renovation came from a combination of city borrowing, grants from the library endowment, and fund-raising.
