Library Building Commmittee


The Library Building Committee was formed to assist in the design of a modern, progressive, next-generation library. The committee accomplishes this goal though:
  • Working directly with the Library project management and design firms.
  • Making recommendations regarding the design and function of the exterior and interior of the new library.
  • Soliciting input from the Library Board of Trustees, staff, Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, and the community-at-large.
  • Keeping the Board of Trustees informed with a report at each monthly board meeting.
  • Becoming familiar with design principals, both functional and aesthetic, of 21st-century public libraries.
  • Reviewing the current Library building program.
  • Assisting in establishing design priorities.
  • Participating in the schematic design process, attending public charrettes, and providing comments on the developing design to the Board of Trustees.
  • Reviewing final design documents.
  • Making final design recommendations to the Board of Trustees for approval.

The committee meets the first Thursday of the month at 4 p.m. in the City Hall Meeting Room, Room 201, 14 Court Square, Greenfield, MA. Please check the calendar for scheduled meeting information, including agendas.
