West End Library Programming Study; Virtual Meeting Oct. 22

The first community meeting for the programming study for the Boston Public Library’s West End Branch will be held October 22, 2020 at 6:30pm, via Zoom.

The City of Boston is currently conducting a programming study at the West End Branch to review the existing conditions of the library, as well as its areas of opportunity. The meeting will be hosted by representatives from the City of Boston’s Public Facilities Department, the Boston Public Library, the City of Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services.

The 12-15 month study phase is the first step in the upcoming capital project for the West End Branch. The City will hold a series of community meetings to solicit feedback and provide updates on the project to West End residents, neighbors, patrons, and community organizations. The study phase will be led by the City of Boston’s Public Facilities Department, in concert with the Boston Public Library and the design firm, Ann Beha Architects. A subsequent 12-16 month design phase is expected to follow the programming phase, which will include additional opportunities for community input, prior to a groundbreaking.
