Bucks for books

Shrewsbury – Many Shrewsbury residents believe the town's public library is well past its prime and in need of a major facelift.

Recently, officials were notified that the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners has approved a Provisional Grant Award of $7.96 million for a new library. The grant is subject to, among other conditions, approval and funding from the town. The last attempt to gain town funding through a Proposition 2-1/2 debt exclusion was defeated in October 2011.

The trustees have until June 30, 2013, to secure the additional funding needed and to sign a contract with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
