The former Hansen Branch of the Hammond Public Library will find new life as a multi-purpose community center.Plans by the Hessville Commerce & Community Creative (HC3) organization currently aim to renovate the circa-1931 building that has been closed for 13 years.

“HC3 had heard at Mayors Night Out last October that the Hammond Redevelopment Commission was putting a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the building) out sometime soon,” said HC3 president Amy Radolak. “We, as a board, spoke about the ups and downs of taking on such a big project and voted to take on this task.”  Read more...

HC3 is very excited about this new up coming project!


HC3 has acquired the Old Hansen Library Branch from the City of Hammond. Located at the intersection of Martha Street & Alabama, this Library has stood vacant for 13 years. During this time the building has occurred significant damage due to a compromised roof. HC3's goal is to restore the original structure with the help of Indiana Landmarks and Greg Kil, an architect who specializes in historic preservation. Once the building has been restored the building will serve our community once again like it was originally intended. We are looking to provide Veteran support services, student tutoring, and adult workforce advancement. We have proceeded with having this building nominated on the Historical Registry as well as the National Registry. Your donation will help HC3's mission to restore this building.


Thank you to the City of Hammond for their support. Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr., Africa Tarver, Executive Director of Redevelopment, the Redevelopment Commission, Anne Anderson, Director of Economic Development, and our 6thDistrict Councilman Scott Rakos. It really does take the support of so many to make great things happen within our city, HC3 is proud to have an amazing community! We thank everyone for their ongoing support of HC3!! You can Help HC3 in our mission by donating to help restore the old Hansen Library. -HC3 President,  Amy Radolak
