After multiple delays and months of finishing work, the Westwood Public Library has opened, setting a town attendance record with more than 1,800 patrons pouring through the doors on its first day last week. “We had our first visitors waiting when I opened the doors at 10 a.m.,” library director Tom Viti said. “And it was nonstop from there. Just what we were hoping for. Westwood loves its library.” Viti also reported that more than 1,700 books were checked out that day, a volume that far surpasses anything the library has seen to date. The 32,000-square-foot building contains more than 30 computers, 80,000 books, a children’s wing, a teen reading room, a second-floor adult library, several meeting spaces, and an art gallery.
