Furniture for the O’Connell Library ($36,000)

East Cambridge (48 Sixth Street)

The furniture at the O’Connell library is quite worn down. This proposal would provide the library with new tables, chairs, computer workstations, and loveseats for parents and children to read together.

Details: 

The furniture at the O’Connell library is quite worn down. This proposal would provide the library with new tables, chairs, computer workstations, and couches.

The library receives significant traffic, checking out approximately 51,000 books per year and hosting 400 programs annually. Because the library is a hub of activity for young people, especially school and daycare groups, the project includes several new tables and chairs for toddlers, as well as a loveseat for parents and children to read together. Several residents proposed using participatory budgeting funds to make improvements to the O’Connell library, and purchasing this furniture would liven up the library for years to come.

    I’ve been a patron of the O’Connell Branch library for many years from the days of when silence was the “golden rule” . The furniture is definitely old and worn down and the branch itself definitely needs a makeover.
