Library Construction Begins

Work has begun on the new main library! TLT Construction has taken over the site, fencing off the perimeter of the work area and installing a work trailer for the managerial staff. Steve Viegas is TLT’s project manager and Dennis Pacitti is Design Technique’s Clerk-of-the-Works representing the Town. Weekly project meetings will begin on April 14. The expected completion date for the project is the summer of 2012.

On April 7, the Library Trustees hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at the Main Library. Representative Paul McMurtry and Massachusetts Library Commissioner George Comeau were among the speakers. Library Trustee Chair Jane Wiggin welcomed the seventy guests and Selectman Chair Nancy Hyde spoke about the importance of a public library to the Town. To see a streaming video of the ceremony go to the Westwood Community Access Television site at http://westcat.tv/ and look under “Town Events.”

The Library’s new schedule went into effect on April 4. The details can be found on our web site at www.westwoodlibrary.org
