The Pawlet Public Library hosted a Community Information Meeting on Sunday, Feb.9 about Library accessibility improvements, to be voted at Town Meeting on March 3. The meeting included a presentation by the Library Board of Trustees, explaining the need for accessibility improvements, the options the Trustees considered, and the reasons they support building an enclosed addition with an ADA-compliant hydraulic lift and adjacent stairwell. This addition will make the main floor of the Library and the lower level Matt Waite Room fully accessible year-round.
The meeting was announced on Front Porch Forum, Facebook, Pawlet E-News, and by press release to area media. The Library mailed 350 letters about the meeting to Pawlet and West Pawlet residents who are active cardholders, volunteers, and donors to the Library since 2014 (when the cumulative list was begun) to explain the project and invite them to the information meeting.
