FRAMINGHAM - A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Monday, November 6 to commemorate the opening of the Framingham Public Library’s renovated technology learning and homework centers.
The technology learning center is a new addition to the main library along Lexington Street, while the homework center has now been re-opened. Free tutoring for local students from kindergarten through high school is being offered at the homework center, as residents are already taking advantage of the new resources.
“Our library in Framingham is much more than just a depository for books,” Mayor Charle Sisitsky told guests at the event.
“It brings all these new services to the residents, and it’s a terrific operation here.”
President of the Massachusetts Senate Karen Spilka was also among the guests in attendance for the ribbon cutting, as she thanked members of the local delegation of politicians at the State House who were able to secure $100,000 for these upgrades.
“I know I’m not the only one who believes that libraries really do matter,” Spilka said.
“They matter more than ever before as sanctuaries for free thought and free expression, a common civic space…it’s a place for residents to access the technology they need.”
