Greenfield Public Library Grand Opening Celebration

GREENFIELD - On Thursday, July 13, the city of Greenfield welcomed the new Greenfield Public Library on 412 Main St. The festivities kick off at 9:30 a.m. with the Greenfield Military Band, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. with remarks by Mayor Roxann Wedegartner, Lt. Gov Kim Driscoll, outgoing Greenfield Public Library Director Ellen Boyer, Library Building Committee Co-chair Ed Berlin and Greenfield Public Library Board of Trustees Doris Cowdry. 

Following the ribbon-cutting, the 26,800-square-foot facility was unveiled to the public for a day of discovery and exploration. 

The new, state-of-the-art space is filled with essential amenities accessible for all ages, including laptop vending machines, welcoming community spaces and sections designed for kids, teenagers and adults. The project was made possible through a wide net of supporters. The MBLC awarded the project a $9.38 million state grant, while the Greenfield Public Library Foundation fundraised $2 million. The $19.5 million project also came under budget by $1.6 million.
