The existing library building is failing and urgently needs to be replaced:
There are constant failures — big and small — in critical library building systems. These failures have already led to multiple library closures and could have disastrous consequences for the resources inside. The problems with the building cannot wait any longer. At a cost of tens of millions, repairing the old building is not a responsible option.
This video, presented at the joint meeting of the Select Board and Library Trustees on October 4, 2021, gives a seven minute overview of the multiple ways the current library building is failing and why it urgently needs to be replaced. You can watch the video in its entirety on YouTube here and on the Belmont Media Center here.
