Our Building Committee was appointed by Town Moderator Mike Widmer at the end of 2017. In 2018 the committee worked to hire Daedalus Projects as our Owners Project Managers and Oudens Ello Architecture as our Architecture Firm.

In February of 2019 The Chairs of our Library Trustees and Building Committee presented these slides as an update to the Board of Selectmen, showing the path forward.

In May of 2019, the Building Committee held our 5th Open Public Forum to share the latest schematics and design of our new building. Click the links below to view the presentation and accompanying images of the design.
