Pascoag Public Library

-A A +A
1924, Jackson, Robertson and Adams. 57 Church St.

The Pascoag Public Library is another village Neo-Colonial brick, hip-roofed box by the same Providence architects who later designed Levy's more elaborate building in Harrisville. Its recessed entrance porch is flanked by a pair of sizable windows designed to maximize light inside, as though designed for a schoolhouse in contrast to the diminutive shuttered quaintness Levy wanted for Harrisville. Here the elevation is more prosaic, but also more inventive.
