The Worcester Public Library, City of Worcester, and Worcester Public Library Foundation will mark the construction kickoff for the renovations of the Main Library with a ceremonial first dig by the renovation project team on Wednesday, June 12 at 3:30 p.m., Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square (Franklin Street).
The ceremony will begin with comments from library, foundation, and City of Worcester officials, as well as some special guests, followed by a ceremonial groundbreaking.
The renovation project will create a new “front door” on Franklin Street, opening the library up to the Worcester Common. It will also increase the library’s footprint by 8,000 square feet, creating more public space, and will allow for a new and exciting Children’s Room on the third floor.
