Westhampton Memorial Library

Westhampton, MA

This Library project re-purposed the old parsonage across the street from the church and the former library building. An addition was built and connected to the Colonial which has the appearance of a barn. We worked with the Building Committee to provide a shelving package and custom millwork package. The goal was to compliment work by many other local craftspeople, who were contributing their efforts to the project. The Committee selected System 3000 shelving, which was provided in two custom colors. We designed the shelving end panels to compliment the circulation desk front rail and stile detail. The wood species is Cherry with a clear finish. The Committee also asked that canopy tops be provided with cherry on both faces, and run over the end panels to achieve more of a “built-in” look. Some of the Children’s Room shelving was provided on casters so that they could make room for story hours and other activities
