Wayland is in the process of considering building a new library. A grant has been obtained from the state. Voters will make a decision in April 2018 at the town meeting. If approved the process of building the new library will begin. If not approved the grant will be rescinded. The new library would be located near the Wayland Middle School.
The Arts Wayland board of directors supports using the present library at 5 Concord Rd, Wayland, as a cultural center if a new library is built.
Arts Wayland, as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with a 30 year history in the town, may have an opportunity to play a role in making this vision a reality. Arts Wayland members, and artists from all local towns are invited to comment below and share your thoughts and ideas for such a venture. We want you to be involved in this exciting venture. Please contact us if you want to attend a meeting to discuss and form an artists advisory committee. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (774) 421-9211
Please rsvp to attend a tour of the library after hours. email@example.com
Here are some ideas to consider:
Create a cultural hub bringing together different town resources, organizations and age groups through learning and sharing via all the arts.
Connect with groups from other towns to use the facility and increase the vibrancy of the facility.
Create a performance and exhibit space enjoyed by Wayland and surrounding towns.
Hold classes, talks and workshops with a focus on culture and the arts.
Art classes that the Park and Rec holds at the fire station in Cochituate might be re-located freeing up space much needed by the fire station.
Preserve the beauty of this unique building and have it continue to play a role in the culture of the region.
We hope that people find the Wayland community an attractive destination to enjoy the arts.
