The Voluntown Public Library is bursting at its seams.
With no meeting room or dedicated children’s room, the Voluntown Public Library has outgrown the former post office in now occupies. The Voluntown Public Library opened in 1996.
Cathy Rubin, the Library Director at the Voluntown Public Library, has worked with library staff and The Friends of the Library to set up a GoFundMe page. Through this page it is hoped to raise the $250,000 needed to match grant funding for a wanted library addition.
If you would like to support this library improvement, donations are being accepted at the library, or through a gofundme page which has been set up at the following link.
A committee has been set up by the Selectmen to plan the design and research a final cost estimate for a library addition. This committee will report to the Selectmen when finished, then the project will be proposed to the town for vote.
