Mayor Gary Christenson was on hand with Malden Public Library Director Dora St. Martin to thank members of the Adelaide Breed Bayrd Foundation for funding support of two of the Library’s most recent renovations: a new wheelchair lift providing accessible access to the Converse Memorial Building; and a complete interior upgrade to the Library’s first floor public restrooms. The two projects were completed throughout the spring of 2018, with design and construction services provided by United Elevator, Spencer & Vogt Group, Inc. and Murray Brothers Construction. The wheelchair lift replaced an older model installed in 1994 through a donation of former Trustee President Florence Burns and provides access for wheelchair use and disabled individuals to the Converse Memorial Building and art galleries. The restroom renovation included a new ceiling, tile floors, stall partitions, fixtures, countertops, lighting, and new paint.
