A Brief History of the Building
1916: Andrew Carnegie gave $5,000 to the town to build the library.
2007: The library celebrated its 90th anniversary on December 1st, complete with an Andrew Carnegie interpreter and a time capsule burying.
2008: This library was awarded a construction grant of $988,483 from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. The hope is to build a combined public and school library as part of an educational complex that would include an elementary, middle and high school on a single campus. The complex would not be located on the current library property.
