Chester C. Corbin Public Library
Webster, MA


DRA was hired in 2008 to study and provide schematic design services for the new Chester C. Corbin Public Library.  

The new library will be two stories plus a partial basement built on the current library site in the center of Webster.  Additional land will be purchased at the rear of the property to expand parking.  The library is intentionally designed to help revitalize the center of town that has many vacant storefronts.  The new library is designed to accommodate green strategies for energy efficiency and low environmental impact, including a vegetated roof.

Currently, the building is awaiting the release of State grant funds.
