A Message from the Director

Out and About

It is a great pleasure to be out in the community, sharing our plans for the Library Expansion. We have been showing the preliminary floor plans and elevations at the Farmers' Market, the polls, and soon at the Summer Concerts in the Park. I hope you’ll stop by our display when you come to enjoy the Thursday concerts beginning June 30.

We will also be offering behind-the-scenes tours of the current building to explain the needs and to show you the inadequate spaces that may not be evident from the front of the building. We will post tour dates on our Facebook page and in the library.

The next step on the road to a November referendum is a meeting with the Town Council. They must approve the bond language and authorize the project to be on the November ballot. We look forward to the Councilors' support to give citizens the opportunity to vote on this project.

We have developed answers to frequently asked questions and will continue to expand this list. You will find the FAQs and images of the project on our dedicated website, https://Expansion.scarboroughlibrary.org

Thank you to the many people who have taken the time to stop at our display and chat with our staff and volunteers. We appreciate your thoughtful suggestions on how to make the library responsive to your needs. We have heard how vital you believe the public library is not only to you and your family but to reflect the outstanding services and quality of life offered in Scarborough. We are gratified by your kind words and your support.
