Déja Vu---Scott Leslie and Julie Bergeron repeat winners at 25th Hubbardston Library 5K Fundraiser


Once again, the weather was perfect for running and walking on Saturday September 10th for the 25th Annual Hubbardston Library 5K Run/Walk. Race Director Mark Wigler thanked the participants as well as the sponsors and gift donors for their role in continually making this library fundraiser a successful family friendly event.  This year marked the 150th Anniversary of the Library’s opening.
 
A total of 88 runners and walkers registered for the annual event.  Many participants acknowledged that this event could not continue to be a success without the cooperation of local police, emergency personnel, library trustees and race volunteers. The Library raised over $3,600 from  Saturday’s event to assist in ongoing library operations.
 
Perennial winner, Rutland resident and  Quabbin alum Scott Leslie beat Templeton resident and  Quabbin alum Jeremy Zglobicki  to win the 25th Annual Run/Walk in a time of 16:54..   Zglobicki’s second place finish was an excellent 18:49..  Winner on the women’s side was once again Julie Bergeron  of Baldwinville finishing in 23:14,.   First Male racewalker was Brian Savilonis of Princeton in a time of  33:43 while the overall First place walker and Women’s winner was Fiona Levey of Northborough in 32:45.

Library History

  The Hubbardston Public Library was founded in 1872, and originally housed its collection of books in the local Mechanics Hall. In 1874, Jonas G. Clark, a native of Hubbardston and founder of Clark University, purchased the Main Street Property and funded the construction of the brick and stone library building.
 
The building is in the Second Empire/Italianate style and was designed by Elbridge Boyden and Son, of Worcester. In September 1875, the Hubbardston Public Library opened the doors at its 7 Main Street location, where you can find it today. The first floor was originally half library, half post office, hence the  plaques you might notice flanking the front door. The gallery level was added to the rear of the building in 1929. Many residents recall the gallery's original translucent glass floor.
The property underwent a historical restoration project in 2000 to address many of its needed repairs.
In 2016, the library had an interior restoration which included restoring the original heart pine floors, new carpet in the entry, electrical work, a new sunny yellow paint in the children's room and some new furnishings.
Up next for the library is developing a long range plan.
