Way Finders is working with Dietz & Company Architects to blend 38 residences with community facilities, support services and cultural space. Library Commons provides access to employment, education and entertainment opportunities, as well as to downtown Holyoke’s burgeoning cultural scene. With close proximity to services, amenities and public transportation, Library Commons offers convenience, community and innovation to both its residents and its neighbors.
Library Commons is comprised of three rehabilitated historical buildings and one newly constructed building. The development includes a supportive services component, managed by The Care Center, known as Roque House.
A number of Way Finders’ services will be made available on-site including adult basic education, financial literacy, first-time home buyer classes; career counseling; income tax preparation, college admission and financial aid application assistance. There will also be meeting space, classrooms and an art studio/gallery available to all Library Commons residents.
