Abbot Public Library Renovation Campaign

In recognition of the unprecedented health crisis and economic hardship created by the COVID-19 global pandemic, a motion was made and passed unanimously on April 2, 2020, by the Library Trustees, to postpone the override request of up to $9.5M for the critical infrastructure replacement and renovation of the Abbot Public Library.  Following this vote, the Library Trustees will notify the Finance Committee of the Town of Marblehead to recommend indefinite postponement for this year.  We will request time at this year’s Town Meeting to speak to the library building’s failing infrastructure system and the increasingly dire need for its replacement.  We are hopeful to come back to Town Meeting in 2021 and ask for support to pass an override to address these critical concerns
