In Summary: Planning for Our New Library
Since our doors opened in 1952, Falmouth Memorial Library has been a cornerstone of our town maintaining the public library’s long-standing traditions of knowledge and community.
Fast forward 60+ years to today’s ever-changing world in which libraries have had to adapt to new technologies and the changing priorities of its users.
While we have done our best to adapt to our users’ needs, our much-needed expansion will allow us to maintain the traditions and practices of the past while crafting and leading the way to new and exciting traditions for our future.
This illustration of the plan for the expanded library site shows the new arrangement of the building and parking lot, providing additional handicapped-accessible and standard parking spaces.
Highlights of our expanded library include:
- Separate Youth Services (children and teens) wing
- Community seating
- Increased public computing and access to technology
- Quiet, sun-filled reading room
