Marianne Fleckner, Chair of J.V. Fletcher Library Board of Trustees

VOTE YES on Question 2 on the local ballot and support the decade-old library expansion initiative, funded in part by $7.85 million state grant. We thank our Special Town Meeting supporters who voted for this project on October 17, but to proceed forward a majority vote is needed on November 8, so we request your support at the ballot.

Vote for this investment in the future of library services, the Westford community and its families, and allow Westford to claim this state-funded construction grant. With a continuous library tradition dating back to 1797, the Westford community enjoys over 300 days per year of library service, with over 19,000 card holders taking out of 1,430 items per day. Lay this foundation for the future and VOTE YES on Question 2 on November 8.
