ONLY IN YOUR ENTERPRISE: Stoughton library shows its age - Brockton, MA - The Enterprise I was pleased to see this story on the front page of this morning's [Brockton] Enterprise. Unfortunately I cannot post the article itself, as it is an exclusively hard-copy story. But here is the gist as summarized on the link above: Forum planned on library expansion "The 41-year-old Stoughton Public Library is showing its age. The elevator does not meet codes for handicapped accessibility. The roof is 10 years beyond warranty. With no attic or basement, the building has no storage space. There aren’t even enough electrical outlets for laptop computers. At 6 p.m. Monday in the library’s Wales French Room, patrons will have a chance to diacuss expanding the library." I tip my hat to Library Director Pat Basler who has inspired colleagues with a host of imaginative library services.
