Library of yesteryear


library 100th postcard

Per the 20 year capital plan and facilities report (558 pages) the Board of Selectmen received this past week on the town owned buildings, the library and other town buildings have expensive maintenance needs.  From memory the front steps of the library need about $20,000 of fixes, the old front door in the picture needs weatherstiping, and the many library façade bricks need repointing.

I hope I will be permitted to release the full report to residents after the report is presented to the Board of Selectmen this evening.  It is really well done – complete, instructive at best, and worrisome at worst.  Owning and maintaining building is clearly expensive, but the maintenance must be both scheduled and performed.
