From The Windsor Star:
A $7.9-million infusion of cash — Windsor’s largest library investment in years — means the city’s whole system will soon transform.
The Windsor Public Library will have fewer books and more electronic resources. It will offer some new and upgraded spaces, and a couple of consolidated branches, along with a bookmobile. And it will likely have less of that one quintessential library characteristic: quiet.
But after city council last week approved a much-debated modernization proposal, library officials this week started heading into the future.
“This will allow us to move to a state-of-the-art system,” said Windsor Public Library chairman Peter Frise. “It will have less focus on lots of little branches across the city, and the facilities will be better able to provide the kinds of services modern libraries provide.
