Building Literacy: Public Library Construction

Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners Construction Team

This Massachusetts-focused podcast is for librarians, trustees, and local officials who are exploring or undertaking a renovation, expansion, or new construction project for their library. However, stakeholders in library building projects everywhere may find helpful information within these episodes. From fundraising and advocacy campaigns to sustainability and resilience, to the planning, design, and construction process, there is something for everyone. The hosts, Andrea Bunker and Lauren Stara, are the Library Building Specialists who administer the Massachusetts Public Library Construction Program, a multi-million dollar grant program run by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the state agency for libraries.
