Building History

Architect Carl Gould, Sr., (1873-1939) of the firm of Bebb and Gould, designed this library in the spring of 1933, making it a relatively late work in his career. The building reflected Gould's efforts to update his previous historicist architectural vocabulary by hybridizing it with Art Deco and Streamline Moderne influences. The building opened to the public on 10/03/1934.


The architectural firms of Cardwell/Thomas and Dykeman Architects renovated the library and its entrance in 1991.
