Last week, we featured a photo of the main library building of the town library system. According to the Historical Society, “a subscription library was first started in 1837 and Noah Webster donated 78 books to that library. The first library was housed at the First Church but eventually a fundraising effort led to the construction of this building. This building was named to honor Noah Webster and was dedicated in 1917.”
Congratulations to Lisa Khan and Judi Killoran for their correct answers.
