To the Editor:

My understanding is that we are one of two remaining towns that have not updated their town library.

For many years the New Milford Public Library has been treated like an orphan while other projects such as a multi-million dollar artificial turf field got approved.

This is a much-needed renovation that has gone through many studies and revisions and has finally gotten the green light from our mayor and town council.

Two grants have been received and the work will be bonded.

Please be proud of our community, be civic minded and vote “yes” in support of our library Nov. 6.
