On July 10th, Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Dorchester’s community gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking of the renovated Adams Street Branch of the Boston Public Library. Ground is so glad to be part of this public effort to improve such an important community asset. In partnership with NADAAA Architects and BSC Group, we designed a site that fully integrates the building within the context, welcomes people and provides intimacy.
"Our public libraries represent our shared values. The investments we are making in our neighborhood libraries are a direct reflection of the love of libraries that I see and hear from our residents," said Mayor Walsh. "If you go to any branch library in the city after school, you will see children from all different backgrounds reading books, asking questions, doing projects, and exploring worlds of imagination and information. They're finding material to build their dreams with, and I'm proud that we're creating new spaces for them to do exactly that."
