Ap­pre­cia­tive li­brary project can go for­ward

The News-Times - - OPINION -

It is with ex­treme plea­sure that I write this let­ter of ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the peo­ple of New Mil­ford.

Your sup­port of the mod­ern­iza­tion and ren­o­va­tion project en­ables us now to move for­ward with a project that was long over­due. Our last ren­o­va­tion was an ad­di­tion in 1977 to the orig­i­nal and el­e­gant li­brary built in 1898.

The ren­o­va­tion will in­clude, among other things, a ded­i­cated teen area, a larger chil­dren’s area and ADA ac­ces­si­bil­ity. It will truly meet the needs of all the cit­i­zens of our beau­ti­ful town and will con­tinue to be the cen­ter for life-long learn­ing.

Thank you to ev­ery­one in­volved in this won­der­ful out­come: Mayor Bass and the Town Coun­cil, the New Mil­ford Pub­lic Li­brary Board of Trustees, the Di­rec­tor and her amaz­ing staff, the FRIENDS of NMPL, the town-ap­pointed Mod­ern­iza­tion Com­mit­tee and, of course, the cit­i­zens of New Mil­ford.

All of us look for­ward to the day we will open the doors and cel­e­brate a new be­gin­ning of an in­sti­tu­tion that has been in op­er­a­tion since 1898.

Joanne M. Lil­lis Pres­i­dent, NMPL Board of Trustees
