- WESTFIELD HISTORY
The Westfield Athenaeum has unveiled its most ambitious fundraising campaign in its more than 150 year history, with a goal to raise $1.5 million by the end of 2017. Executive Director Daniel Paquette says "The funds will support a building and renovation project to make the Athenaeum universally accessible, safer for children and families and ensure the beauty and historic integrity of our beloved building for generations to come" .
This campaign represents an historic milestone for the Athenaeum--the first time in fifty years the library has asked the public to support renovations and improvements to the building. "Many people don't realize that the Westfield Athenaeum, although open to the entire community, is not a city department", said Paquette. "We are continuously grateful for the support and funding we receive from the City of Westfield, Mayor Sullivan and our City Council. Their support will allow us to move forward with contractors and bring our plans to life."
