On April 24, the Blake Memorial Library Association convened for its Annual Meeting. At the meeting, the library Board of Trustees shared conceptual plans for library renovations, which were designed in partnership with architect Jay White and based on the library’s latest Strategic Plan, feedback from the community, and the library’s vision of being a community “living room” for the residents of Topsham and Corinth.
The library believes the proposed renovation plans reflect community needs, as laid out in our latest Strategic Plan, including more open and flexible community spaces and increased accessibility of those spaces.
The renovation design planning is being carried out by an ad hoc committee of Board members and interested members of the community, whose task it is to make renovation recommendations to the Board of Trustees.
The library Board of Trustees is also considering expanding our parking lot, to make it easier for patrons to access the library and to provide more off-road parking.
Our website will have updates on the renovation design as well as the timeline for any renovations that are approved by the Board.
