Voters approve support for Hotchkiss Library expansion
SHARON — By unanimous vote, residents approved a town expenditure to support the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon’s $3 million expansion project at a town meeting on Thursday, Jan. 27, held at Sharon Center School.
As a result of the action, the town will contribute $50,000 toward the construction project to expand the library, adding convenient access for handicapped patrons as well as refurbishing and restoring the historic interior spaces. When the work is completed the library will be well-suited for service to the town’s residents far into the future.
Dale Jones was elected moderator for the brief meeting.
In recent months, the proposed expenditure had received approval by both the Boards of Selectmen and Finance, clearing the way for voters to decide at the town meeting.
