Dudley Branch Renovation Project

The Dudley Branch of the Boston Public Library is temporarily closed for renovations with plans to reopen in Spring 2020. The $14.7 million renovation includes a new welcome area overlooking a redesigned plaza; improved visibility and openness; dedicated space for children, teens, and adults; a nutrition lab and learning lab; refreshed collections; and more. During the closure, Dudley Branch patrons are encouraged to use any of the BPL’s other locations throughout the city. For information on relocated programming during the Dudley Branch closure, please visit the Dudley Branch’s dedicated page.

This project is a collaboration between the Boston Public Library and the City of Boston’s Public Facilities and Arts & Culture Departments, under the leadership of Mayor Martin J. Walsh. The Library is working with architecture firm Utile, Inc. and a community advisory committee on the design for the renovations.
