The Library Board, through the strategic planning process, has identified the expansion project as a priority.
In addition, the Town of Scarborough has completed a comprehensive municipal facilities study which includes municipal and school buildings and capital projects. Expanding the Public Library has risen to the top of the list and is tentatively in the queue for a bond request in November 2020. Bonding requests of this magnitude must go to a referendum vote. A portion of the project will be funded through a capital campaign.
The overall objective of the library building program is to provide a solid foundation for development of a community-centric, schematic design by an architect. The program should also provide information suitable for use in crafting communications required for a successful capital campaign and bond referendum. The program should reflect the Scarborough Public Library’s values and service goals.
At their October 2018 meeting, the library's Board of Trustees voted to create a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the purpose of identifiying and hiring a building consultant.
