The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) awarded the Erving Public Library a construction grant. The grant allows the Town of Erving to build a new library, replacing the outdated current facility. Because the Town approved their portion of the funding prior to the award announcement, the next design phase began immediately. As such, the design development phase recently finished up. Johnson Roberts Associates is working toward a September 2018 bid date with the Library Building Committee and their project manager, P3 of Norwell, MA.
