EPPING — The staff and Trustees of the Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library wish to thank the 527 voters who said ‘yes’ to a new library building, as well as the patrons who said they wish they could have. Though it wasn’t enough to make the new building a reality, it was heartening to know the library is important to so many. Since the staff still has to discard nearly as many books as it adds each month, the Trustees will continue to look at reasonable options to help with accessibility, shelf space and filling the community needs of this growing town. A huge thank you to Heather Clark for her three very full years on the Board of Trustees, and a warm welcome to Charlie Goodspeed who will join existing Trustees Laurie Dudley, Lynn Reinhard, Michael Vose and returning Trustee Paul Miliotis.
