Pittsfield Library

Updated 4 years ago

After 10 years of fund raising in Pittsfield, the restoration and expansion project at the town’s library has been completed. Tomorrow, the library will open its doors to the public to showcase all the hard work they’ve put in To walk around the library, you’d think this is how it always looked. The rooms flow from one section to another in row upon row of books. It looks effortless, but this project was years in the making. Officials say the Library’s Restoration and Expansion project began 10 years and 1.5 million dollars ago. Most of that money was donated by the community. The town donated 100 thousand dollars to the project, which included restoration to the old library, adding new rooms, art and decorations, and improving the flow and comfort for the readers. With this project done, the torch has been passed to the newly formed group, Friends of the Library. This group will continue to fund raise and provide volunteer assistance. The library’s grand opening will be from 11 to 1 pm Saturday. All are welcome to attend.
