My town’s library is 112 years old and we are in dire need of a new building. Plans for a replacement have been in the works since the mid-1990s.
We now have a $10 million grant from the state of Massachusetts to cover half the cost, and after much consternation and activism by the community, the City Council finally voted last night to authorize the borrowing authority necessary to accept the grant.
This is a huge deal for my town, and I am super-excited about it.
For anyone interested in the details, you can read more over on my other site.
