Historic Massachusetts library doubles in size
A 31,000-sf expansion is planned for the Woburn (Mass.) Public Library, an 18,000-sf facility designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and dating to 1876. Boston-based CBT was commissioned to preserve the historic library while upgrading and expanding the building to accommodate modern services and demand for space. The firm's designs include an addition that serves as a backdrop to the historic facility. A glass walkway connects the two structures.
