The Town of Washington and the Shedd Free Library Trustees have a unique opportunity to acquire the lot adjacent to the north facade of our library.  This purchase, contingent on approval at Town Meeting, would benefit all of us in so many ways.  First and foremost it would allow for parking and handicap access to the library on the same side of the road: no more worrying about who is coming around the bend as you cross!  Add to that a new location for the community garden, access for maintenance and room for expansion of the SFL, and preservation and enhancement of our historic town center.  While funding for this purchase will come in part from a financial commitment from the SFL Trustees, any donation you can pledge now will offset any funds needed through taxation.   Your commitment will significantly help us reach our goal and will be deeply appreciated.  Thank you!

Please see the attached Appeal Letter for more info about supporting this effort.
