Roosevelt School (former) Improvements – Maynard MA

Description

The Work Projects Administration (W.P.A.) conducted improvement work at Maynard’s former Roosevelt School—now the town’s public library—in 1941. All school buildings in the town “on the exterior have been completely renovated by having the windows weather stripped, puttied and painted. The interior[s]… are now being repaired with W.P.A. labor by installing new celotex ceilings where needed, replacing plaster ceilings that were beyond repairs, having the hallways, classrooms washed and painted. These repairs have added consiterabl[y] to the appearance of our school buildings.”
