Library Land Project founders Adam Zand and Greg Peverill-Conti are on a quest to visit every public library facility in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since 2017, they have visited over two hundred libraries, four of which have been designed by Oudens Ello Architecture. With the pair using a ranking system based on eleven important criteria, all four of OEA’s facilities have received high marks. As of late summer 2019, the Gladys E. Kelly Library in Webster remains Library Land Project’s top-ranked library with its only perfect score, while Eastham remains tied for third and Millis and Scituate within the top 15. Library Land Project’s positive reviews of Webster and Eastham can be found here.
