MAAB approved the request for waiver for the Grafton Common entrance, requiring signage, an automatic door opener, and handrail extensions. A fully accessible entrance is planned for the parking lot entrance.
The Library Planning and Building Committee met Sept 9 & 23. We selected a third party testing agent for the soil, concrete, and structural steel and are soliciting quotes for removal of the original (empty) oil tank. Schematics were revised and provided Sept 19 and are attached.
The Select Board voted to enter into a contract with CTA construction on Sept 3; the Notice to Award is attached.
The LULA was inspected for decommissioning. A walkthrough of the 35 Grafton Common property was scheduled.
Additional exterior lighting was added for the temporary facility.
Got fines? To aid the Grafton Food Bank, the Library will offer fine forgiveness in returns for donations of non-perishable items for the Grafton Food Bank. The program will run November 1 to December 31, 2019.
The value of donated items should total the fine amount. Please donate unopened, unexpired, non-perishable items valued at your fine amount. Items that are perishable, open, leaking, damaged, or expired cannot be accepted.
The Food Bank accepts tolietries, diapers, baby food and formula and pet food. A list of suggestions can be found online on the Food Bank’s website.
Please note Food for Fines applies only to overdue fines, and does not extend to fees for printing, faxing, lost materials, or replacement Library cards.
Donations may be bought to the Grafton Public Library temporary location at 53 N. Main Street, North Grafton. For more details about Food for Fines, or to discuss other alternatives to fees and to bring your Library card into good standing, please contact Susan Leto at 508-839-4649 x1105 or email at email@example.com
The Children’s Room strives to be a fun place for children and families to learn and read together. We offer a wide variety of materials for learning and fun, including materials like books, media and games; toys like blocks, puzzles, puppets, and technology like computers.
We also offer programs and special events for kids up to and including age 12, such as:
Friday Fun with Mr. Kim — music and movement with Mr. Kim from Apple Tree Arts — on the second Friday of each month, for children ages 2-5. This program runs October through May. Registration opens one week prior to the program (first Friday of the month) and anyone on the wait list will automatically be placed in the next months’ session.
