Shortly after the award was announced, library trustees appointed a seven member Needs Assessment Ad Hoc Committee which interviewed and recommended an owner’s project manager and an architectural firm.
The firm, Johnson Roberts, Associates, Inc. of Somerville has prepared an initial design using the approved and accepted library building program.
September 2020 Update: In 2019 Tilton Library moved up to #5 on the Waiting List. If one or more of the libraries in this grant program do not receive funding from their towns we could move up the list even more. In 2020 the MBLC paused the Library Construction Program for a year due to how COVID-19 has impacted municipal budgets. This program will likely continue in 2021 and the Tilton could easily get to the top of the list!
When funds become available through the state’s annual capital budget, a $3,944,338 provisional grant award will be made for Tilton Library’s construction project.
