August 10, 2021 - The Wolfeboro Library Trustees signed a contract with the Horsley-Witten Group (Exeter NH and Sandwich MA) to develop a landscape architectural plan for the land surrounding the building and parking areas. The bidding for the contract resulted in four submissions. The Trustees’ and the Trustees’ Landscape Committee voted unanimously to select Horsley-Witten as the best firm for the project.

The Wolfeboro Public Library Foundation provided a grant of $15,998 to the Library to cover the total contracted price of the project.

The initial project meeting is scheduled to kick-off on August 20th. The process of developing the landscape plan will include meetings and charrettes with Library Staff, Town officials, Town committees, abutters, library patrons and Wolfeboro citizens. You are welcome to participate and share your ideas for the plan. A schedule of these meetings will be published and available at the library.

The Wolfeboro Public Library Foundation raised $1.3 Million dollars from donors toward the cost of the recent renovation and expansion of the library, representing 26% of the cost of the project.

The Library Foundation now is soliciting donations for the beautification of the grounds of the library. Donations to the Library Foundation Landscape Fund will be used to implement the final design. The final design will be widely published, and site drawings will be posted at the library. Construction of the final design could begin later this year depending on weather and contracts and will continue into 2022.

Donations to the Library Landscape Fund can be made by cliicking DONATE or by mailing a check marked Landscape Fund to: Wolfeboro Public Library Foundation, PO Box 472, Wolfeboro NH 03894.
