Library Expansion Update

The Bennington Library was established on May 14, 1948, made possible by a $50.00 donation from the Bennington Junior Woman’s Club. As the library is no longer large enough to provide the services and programs demanded by the burgeoning population of the greater Bennington Community, the Friends of the Bennington Library, the Library Board and volunteers in the community have come together to raise $1.1 million in the Imagine…Expand…Empower Campaign to renovate and expand the library to accommodate the diverse needs of a growing community.

Campaign volunteers are finalizing a contract agreement with the project architect, general contractor and the City of Bennington so that the library renovation can begin! Check back soon for project timeline updates.
