Flint Public Library

Middleton, Massachusetts

The Flint Public Library was constructed in 1891 and continues to proudly serve the community, housing more than 40,000 publications. The brick library was built with Nova Scotia sandstone trimmings and a slate roof. The cypress interior features birch floors and polished oak furniture.

Meridian provided technical civil site design and regulatory permits for the renovation, restoration and expansion of the library, which increased the size of the Flint Public Library by 270% while preserving key historic features of the building. The interior carefully utilized recycled elements from the renovation, such as re-using original wood to build bookshelves, floor surfaces and refinished tables and chairs.

In addition to the renovation of the building itself, Meridian designed a plan for pedestrian access, landscaping and site grading to compliment the proposed and original architecture.
