Draft: May 20, 2013
Below is an overview of recent Falmouth Memorial Library studies.
Note: Studies of sites other than the current location have not been included. These studies included various options at the former Plummer-Motz and Lunt school complex. Only the current location of the library is being considered at this time.
June 2007 Expansion Options A-C, Barba + Wheelock Architects
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
2012 Port City Architecture, on its own initiative, developed an expansion option.
