Town Meeting approves bid for voter approval of library project

Reading Town Meeting members Monday authorized plans to seek townwide voter approval for a temporary tax increase to cover the cost of renovating the local library.

If the ballot question passes in April, Reading’s 31,000-square-foot library would be renovated and a 7,596-square-foot addition would be constructed. The library Board of Trustees is committed to preserving the character of the 19th-century building while enhancing its accessibility and functionality.
