White Mountains Community College buys Littleton building
School plans renovation as it expands course, workforce development programming
White Mountains Community College has purchased the Paul McGoldrick Learning Center, the building it has been leasing in Littleton, with an eye toward expanding its offerings there. The college, which has had a location in Littleton for 25 years, says its main campus location will remain in Berlin. In Littleton, plans call for expanded college programming and workforce development offerings.
The Union Street building, formerly known as the Littleton Area Learning Center, was renamed in dedication to Paul McGoldrick two years ago in honor of his deep involvement and philanthropy in the community.
With the purchase, the college will begin a renovation project, including replacing the HVAC system, adding insulation and upgrading the building exterior. WMCC is also seeking funding to build advanced technology space to provide a modern lab for its Diesel Heavy Equipment Technology program, the only one of its kind in the state community college system.
