Wilmington Library’s First-Floor Redesign Project To Begin On May 27, Wrap By July 31

Below is a message from the Wilmington Memorial Library:

WILMINGTON, MA — Some changes are coming to Wilmington Memorial Library! The redesign of the first floor of the library begins Memorial Day weekend. Please note, there will be some disruption of normal service this summer and periods of closure of the first floor. Please check the library’s website and social media for updates on closures and service changes.

This project was spearheaded with a $100,000 grant award from Cummings Foundation in May 2022. Additional funding support for this project is provided by the Barbara Johnson Trust Fund, Friends of the Library, the Town of Wilmington and state aid grants. In October, Oudens Ello Architecture (OEA) was hired to work with the library team to design the plan, pictured here.

The project begins on Saturday, May 27 with the removal of books onto mobile book carts. The old shelving will then be removed, followed by new paint and carpeting, then the installation of brand-new shelving. We expect the project to be completed by the end of July.

Thank you for your patience! We can’t wait for you to see our new look!
