Library Presentation Before Select Board – December 14, 2021

November 2021: The Town of Westborough, led by its Library Board of Trustees, Library Director and Library Building Committee, is accepting proposals in response to its Request for Qualifications for OPM services for the Library renovation project in Westborough, Massachusetts.

July 2021: We made it to the top of the waiting list!

We were notified in July 2021 that we are now #1 on the waiting list for our construction grant. What that means is that next summer when the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners awards grants, we will be one of the recipients! It also means that the timeline below, under “Fall 2020 Updated Timeline” is still our best guess at the timeline for the project. Here are our short term plans:
Summer 2021: Re-activate the Library Building Committee
Fall 2021: Begin a search for a new Owner’s Project Manager
Early 2022: The OPM and architect will work with the Building Committee to seek a Construction Manager, and begin working on a new cost estimate. The Westborough Public Library Foundation will kick off a capital campaign.
July 2022: Grant announcement.
August 2022: Cost estimate completed and shared with the public.
September 2022: Public meetings about the revised design and costs.
October 2022: Fall Town Meeting where we will seek approval of the project.

We will post updates as things happen, but if you have questions, please email Library Director Maureen Amyot anytime at [email protected]
