Maplebrook School celebrates 75 years of educational roots

AMENIA — Students returning to Maplebrook School at the start of the academic year in September 2020 were bound to hear the ringing of the school bells across campus, which held more meaning then they realized as 2020 was also Maplebrook’s 75th year anniversary of providing education and tradition in the local community.

With Ducillo Construction overseeing construction as the project’s general contractor, the Amenia Free Library began excavation work on the west side of the building in the fall of 2020 to make way for the 68-foot long by 28-foot wide addition to the existing library, which by all accounts is too small for its current collection and programming.

AMENIA — More than 20 years after the idea of expanding the Amenia Free Library on Route 343 was first dreamed of, that expansion is now in being built. The end result will provide a comfortable space for its collection, programming, employees and patrons.
