  • Calling all Star Gazers!

    Telescope, you don't say?



    Did you know the library has a telescope for loan? In September the 28th is the night of the New Moon. The Moon will be on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and not be visible in the night sky. If you want to view faint objects in the sky like galaxies and star clusters, this is the time to try it as there is no moonlight to interfere.  October will have two meteor showers; the Draconids which run from OCtober 6 to the 10th with October 8 being the peak time for sightings and the Orionids. This shower runs annually from October 2 to November 7. It peaks this year on the night of October 21 and the morning of October 22. Come in to the Library and check it out!

Roof Replacement Update

The work on the roof is coming along.  Jesse Kangas took some pictures of the work being done, so we can see how it is going.












Thank You, Hubbardston!

The library is getting a new roof.


This project is a true community effort, and we would like to thank the Community Preservation Committee, Town Administrator, Ryan McLane, Hubbardston Board of Selectmen and of course the Hubbardston voters.
We are so excited to move ahead with this project.
Thank you one and ALL!

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.
