Project Name:

Holyoke Public Library Restoration and Expansion Project, Next Hundred Years Campaign

Project Goals:

Develop a $14.5 million renovated and expanded library facility for the Holyoke Public Library.


After conducting a feasibility study, FDA led a successful effort involving state, municipal, private contributions as well as New Markets Tax Credits to provide funding for a state-of-the-art library and learning center.


The FDA team expertly led the way for the ‘Next 100 Years’ campaign. They helped us put the necessary systems in place and kept the campaign on track no matter what obstacles came our way. FDA worked extremely well with our Board, staff and volunteers to make the most of everyone's time and effort. We are truly thankful that we partnered with FDA to bring this beautiful library to Holyoke.
