Construction begins at New Milford Public Library

NEW MILFORD — Library and town officials celebrated the start of the library modernization at a groundbreaking Friday afternoon.

Construction on the $8.5 million project is expected to last 18 months, but patrons will still be able to use the library’s services.

The project will create a mix of new spaces and repurposing existing areas to expand program and meeting spaces, especially for children and young adults. It will also make changes so the library is more accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
