The size is right….

cartoon 6.14Shrewsbury – For several years now, the Shrewsbury Library Board of Trustees has been trying to get approval for monies for a new, expanded library to replace what they say is a building that is outdated and in disrepair. Those plans were rejected by the voters, many of whom felt the project was too grand.? In response, the trustees reviewed four alternative plans and chose one that they feel will still meet the needs of the town. Proponents successfully sought $85,000 in design funds at the recent town meeting to create schematics for the smaller scale project.

The anticipated cost for the project is now $23 million, of which $7.9 million would be paid for by a state grant. But it will ultimately again be up to the voters this fall to approve the revised plans and if they feel the town should pay its portion of the final cost, an estimated $13.4 million.
