Why A New Library? 

It's time!! The community needs a library designed to inspire and prepare its citizens for the future. Medford is a city of 58,000 residents, with 16,000 using the library each month. The library has served as a learning center for generations with the current library building having opened in 1960 and the first library completed in 1855. 

It's time!! Technological innovations, state-of-art equipment, and modernized meeting spaces are essential for the inspiration and growth of our citizens and will complement our rich history and local collections. 

It's time!! A new library will serve as a gathering place for all citizens, allow all age groups to interact, provide computer technology access to all and provide 21st century pioneering programs.
