WESTFORD - Waitlisted for Library Construction Grant

Westford Library on MBLC Construction Grant List:

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) voted to place the J. V. Fletcher Library on a waitlist for a Provisional Construction Grant. The grant is part of the state-funded Massachusetts Public Library Construction Program (MPLCP) which helps libraries across the state meet the growing demand for library services with expanded and improved library facilities. Thirty-three libraries completed the grant round process and through a rigorous review, 9 libraries were identified to receive grants and 24 were placed on a waitlist (Westford is currently number 10 on the waitlist). Waitlisted libraries will receive construction grants as the funding becomes available either through the existing bond bill or a future bond authorization which is in the FY2020 MBLC Legislative agenda. This means Westford could be in line for $7.8 million of matching funding and two community votes to approve funds and proceed with the library renovation/expansion in the 2021-2022 timeframe.
