There was very little time spent pondering construction of Charlestown's new library branch.
After hearing a proposal for a town library about a month ago, town board members gave the go ahead. The branch opened for business Friday, May 26.
Charlestown is now participating in the worldwide network of more than 36,000 Little Free Libraries. The purpose of a Little Free Library is "To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations." The "branch" was installed adjacent to the post office on Market Street.
