Town of Northampton, Northampton, MA / Forbes Library
The 1894 Forbes Library still resonates with Victorian spirit following its phased renovation. Original architectural details were restored, while new design elements preserve the building's character to create a sense of calm in a more user-friendly environment. The only public library in the U.S. to hold a presidential collection, Forbes houses the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Library & Museum.
