The red stakes mark how close the new Wolfeboro Public Library expansion will come to South Main Street. Library Director Cindy Scott (standing next to sign) points out that the library will now align with other buildings on the street, while providing much-needed addi­tional space to the library itself.

Wolfeboro library outlines plan for renovation

Goal is to minimize disruption over next two years

WOLFEBORO — On March 13, Wolfeboro voters approved the $5 million renovation of its public library by an overwhelming 78.7 per­cent margin. The proj­ect, which involves both expanding the library building and renovating the existing space, is ex­pected to be completed in 2020.

Now comes the hard part: working out the de­tails, selecting contrac­tors and making sure that the library will be able to continue to serve residents throughout the construction process.

Library Director Cin­dy Scott has already begun working with the architectural firm to translate the concep­tual plan into detailed construction plans. This will involve contract ne­gotiations and finalizing many details. Construc­tion drawings should be completed by the end of the summer.
