The Charlotte and William Bloomberg Medford Public Library
In 2020, Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Medford Public Library Foundation announced that the new public library being constructed in the City of Medford would be named the Charlotte and William Bloomberg Medford Public Library in honor of Mike Bloomberg and Marjorie Bloomberg Tiven’s parents. Mike made a $3 million gift toward the construction of the new public library in his hometown, recognizing the essential role it continues to play in the Massachusetts community in which he and his sister grew up.
My parents instilled in my brother and me a love of learning and reading, and the Medford Library gave us the chance to explore new worlds and broaden our horizons. The new library will open doors for even more people through books and learning – expanding opportunity, enriching the community, and improving lives.
