New Proposed Library

Proposed New Library at 195 Main St

The new site will be located front of the Wayland Middle School at the site of the former Highway Department garage. The proposed building will bring us into range of state and national library standards. The illustrations you see here are preliminary sketches until the project funding is approved.

Notice that while we expect a healthy increase in the number of books we can display, the most significant growth will take place in the form of more *spaces* to connect people who want to exchange information and learn.

The preliminary design calls for a two-story facility of 33,530 square feet at 195 Main Street (beside the Middle School) with a separate children’s wing, a dedicated space for teens and young adults, a meeting room with 100-seat capacity, several small conference rooms, increased seating throughout the library, increased shelving for collections, improved computer and Internet access, and increased working spaces for staff. It also includes adequate parking for patrons and staff.
