Big changes coming to our Hampden Branch!

We’re excited to announce that the Pratt’s Hampden Branch is getting a makeover. Starting May 18, the Hampden Branch will be closed for major renovations. The 119-year old library is getting a modern day update that will also keep the historic charm of the building that we all love.

Those in the neighborhood can look forward to the addition of a meeting room in the basement. The new room will double the floor space of the branch! We’ll also be updating the restroom facilities. Notably, the Pratt will make the branch more accessible to those with disabilities by adding a ramp to the entrance of the branch. With all of these changes, we are expecting the project to take 2 years to complete.

• Weekly storytimes for children
• A book collection and pick-up location for holds
