Voters in one Vermont town are going to the polls next month to decide whether to spend nearly $3 million on upgrades to its historic library.
The Rockingham Free Public Library Board of Trustees has been mulling the project for more than two years, and wants to make energy upgrades, improve insulation, upgrade windows, install a new alarm and sprinkler system and make other renovations if the bond passes in the May 17 vote.
On May 9, the library will host an information session about the vote, starting at 7 p.m.
If the bond is approved by voters, the work would start in early 2012.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports the vote will occur the same day that the Rockingham School Board asks for $10.5 million for the Bellows Falls Middle School renovation.
