The town is still working with library officials to figure out what renovations can be done and the state grant, which would off-set the town's portion of the expansion project, could be available as early as 2014.

Thanks for covering this, but I want to mention something in regards to the idea found specifically in the line "the Shrewsbury Public Library is moving forward with their coffee bar idea." That is actually not the case. According to the plans that were voted on, the cafe would have been a specific space in the new building that would be contracted out to a separate company to generate funds for the town and meet a need an overwhelming amount of residents requested in a service survey sent out a couple of years ago - the need for an operating coffee bar similar to what Borders had. My understanding is that this idea is on hold along with the rest of the project, and is not being moved forward at this time like this post suggests. The Friends of the Library and a local donor have generously sponsored what the Library has now - a table with a Keurig machine on it. It's nice to have, but is not the idea that was proposed for the new building.
