Grafton residents will need to visit neighboring towns to borrow library books for the near future.
Beginning April 22 the Grafton Public Library doors will be closed for seven weeks to allow for repairs and renovations to bring the library up to code with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the library's website, improvements include a wheelchair lift, a handicap accessible restroom and new carpeting.
“We are thrilled to be moving forward with this project,” Library Director Beth Gallaway said. “And delighted at the prospect of being accessible to all members of our community at last.”
Residents will be able to use their library cards at area libraries in the C/W Mars system, including Millbury. Any library items that are due after today or being take out prior to the closing will be due June 11 when the library reopens.
May children's programs will be taking place at Apple Tree Arts, and Gallaway will be working with schools and other locations to notify them of the changes.
