People in front of library

OXFORD, MASSACHUSETTS — bankHometown recently donated $2,500 to the Friends of the Pomfret Public Library in support of the library’s 2,000 sq. ft. expansion project.

The Pomfret Public Library recently embarked on a fundraising campaign to support an expansion project that will double its current size. The library received a grant of more than $420,000 from the Connecticut State Library Board covering approximately half the cost of the project but must raise the remaining funds.

The expansion, slated to begin in 2023, will add an L-shaped wing with four rooms to accommodate more group learning experiences and community events. The improvements include a lounge and cafe, a conference room, activity space, and a great room for lectures and workshops. When completed, the space will accommodate groups of eight to 60 people and will host programs and events sponsored by the library and by other community organizations.

“Pomfret Public Library is a central and important part of the social and educational engagement within the community,” said bankHometown President and CEO Robert J. Morton. “We’re pleased to do our part to help the library meet the future needs of the community.”
