After receiving strong support at the recent Scituate Special Town Meeting, residents tomorrow will vote on whether to move forward with a $12 million library expansion and renovation.

The library project includes a $5 million state grant and $600,000 in privately raised donations. Library Director Jessi Finnie outlined the benefits of the project and discussed how heavily the library, which is 35 years old, is used by Scituate residents, even in this high-tech Internet era. If ultimately approved, Finnie said the library would have a year set aside for planning and a temporary relocation of the library, followed by the expansion and renovation over the next 14 to 16 months.

 

 

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
