During the October 4, 2016 Upton Selectmen meeting the Town Manager, Blyth Robinson, announced the Upton Library is not ready to take advantage for a state grant to build a new library.
The Library Feasibility Committee was charged with finding the best option for getting an improved library facility and was pursuing a state grant program which would have offered significant state funding.
Unfortunately the deadline for the grant was this month and the sites which were available for new construction were ruled out as possibilities.
According the Robinson the Feasibility Committee has now disbanded.
So it’s back to the drawing board for the Library Trustees who will review other paths during their November 7 meeting. Options they may consider include updating the facility they currently occupy or possibly finding another location.
