About

The Reading Public Library

64 Middlesex Avenue in Reading, Massachusetts.

Previously known as the Highland School, the two-story brick-and-concrete Renaissance Revival building was designed by architect Horace G. Wadlin and built in 1896–97. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, the year it was converted for use as the library. In 2016, the library completed a two-year long renovation and expansion designed by CBT Architects. Come by for a visit, or explore our site for favorite books and activities for the whole family.
