Seletmen Discussing Montague Center Library Signage Next Meeting
"Many people go to the building looking for Town Hall, not realizing it is located at 1 Ave. A, in Turners Falls."

I'm not opposed to updating the sign, though I also think that preserving history has its merits -- I grew up in a house down in Connecticut that had a sign identifying it as a tavern that hadn't been in operation for over a hundred years.

I do wonder, though -- do we need to replace the sign, or just add another one explaining that the town hall has moved and giving its current location?

PS: Repainting the existing sign would be nice, too. :-)

Seletmen Discussing Montague Center Library Signage Next Meeting
Should the Montague Center Library Building still have a large, badly faded sign reading "1858 Town Hall" as the prominent sign? The current signage is both difficult to read and confusing. Many people go to the building looking for Town Hall, not realizing it is located at 1 Ave. A, in Turners Falls. There have been requests to redo and/or update the signs. Some residents do not want to see any changes, citing the historical nature of the building. The building has housed the Montague Center Library since 1869. It has not served as the Town Hall since well before the 1950s. The Selectmen are giving the public a chance to discuss the issues at their meeting, Monday, 3/21, at 7:10 p.m. in the Town Hall in Turners Falls.

Lego Donations
There was so much interest in the Summer Reading Program Lego series that we have decided to start a monthly Lego Club, beginning in January. However, we don't have many Lego pieces yet! If you have unused Legos that you would be willing to part with, please consider the library! Thank you very much for your generosity.
Details about dates and times for the Lego Club to come.
