Below is an overview of recent Falmouth Memorial Library studies.

January 2010 Real Estate Appraisal of Falmouth Memorial Library property, Cushman & Wakefield
April 2010 Commercial Property Inspection Report, Associated Design Partners
This report was commissioned by the Falmouth Memorial Library Board of Trustees to determine deficiencies of the current building. ¬†As part of the report, the Board asked Mr. Thibodeau to give his opinion of how an expansion of the current library might be effected and that was attached as an addendum to the report. This assessment is from a structural engineering point of view. Zoning regulations, design considerations, functionality as a library space that could be adequately supervised, whether it makes sense from a financial standpoint, and parking are all issues that would need to be addressed.

December 2010 Expansion Options, Associated Design Partners, Grant-Hayes, Kevin Browne Architecture
February 2011 Addendum to 2010 ADP Report, Associated Design Partners
