The goal of the proposed redesign of the library park is to introduce a variety of elements that will make the park more useful to the community and allow the library to further carry out its mission, which is:
“To equip every community member in their pursuit of knowledge through collections, programs, and services, fostering life-long learning, community engagement, and a vibrant cultural life in the Valley.”
The library was recently awarded a $340,000 reimbursement grant from the Northern Borders Regional Commission (NBRC). The Trustees have requested the Board of Selectmen support a warrant article in the same amount as the grant. The tax impact of the proposed warrant article will be $0 as all of the money raised will be reimbursed by the grant.
The library is pursuing other grants and private donations to cover the remaining cost, which is approximately $330,000.
The Trustees are interested in community feedback and will be scheduling opportunities for members of the public to offer comments about the plan.
