What will happen to the current library building when the new library community center is built?

The construction of a new library community center is just the first phase of an extensive, four-phase plan to address the town’s municipal buildings. Upon completion of all four phases of the plan, the Town Hall will relocate into the renovated historical library building; the current Town Hall, the Annex and Historical Society Buildings will be reconfigured into a municipal campus that will be ADA-compliant and energy-efficient.

Work on addressing the deficiencies of the current library building began in 2004. Starting in 2007, two Town Center Committees, composed of a combination of residents and representatives of town departments, studied all buildings and options within a half-mile radius of the existing Town Hall. This work resulted in the 2009 Town Center Report, as well as 2010 and 2011 Progress Reports, which include the phases for improving the Library, the Town Hall and office spaces needed by town departments. Preliminary drawings and a cost analysis are included in that report, which is available at the library and can be found here:

The trustees wish to thank the many volunteers who have contributed hundreds of hours over the past ten years.

Working together, Lee can build it
