"Our City, Our Library, Our Future" Gloucester Wins Library Grant

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners {MBLC} has extended a "Provisional Construction Grants" award to Gloucester's Sawyer Free Library. The provisional MPLCP grant, in the amount of $9,030,047, was announced at their meeting today. Only 6 other communities in the state reached this status. Within 6 months of this notice, critical Committee, Board, Special Town Meeting, and ballot votes will be needed for each community to formally approve the Library Renovation and Expansion Project, and for this project to move forward.
