Gifts to Support the Renovation of the Goodnow Library Historical Room
The GLF has kicked off its fundraising for the refurbishment of the Historical Room! The Library plans to open the room to the public as a quiet space for its patrons.
In response to our community's needs, The Historical Room renovation will allow the room to open as a dedicated quiet area. Work will include securing and customizing storage for the Library's unique documents, maps, and artifacts and rehabilitating the existing shelving for the local history book collection, as well as providing more display opportunities. Furnishings will include four long tables with task lights and outlets and additional armchairs for reading.
The GLF has committed to raise $50,000 for this project to supplement the $150,000 funding that was approved by the Community Preservation Act in September.
