Bentley library receives facelift

The Bentley Municipal Library is being given a new modern look.

Jim Thompson works on updating the outside of the Bentley Municipal Library with more insulation and modern siding.

The Bentley Municipal Library is being given a new modern look. An outside facelift started the last week of September.

The old cinder block building is being wrapped with Tyvek and will have an added 1.5 inches of insulation placed under new vinyl siding for the biggest portion of the outside of the building. Only the front portion that displays artwork acknowledging donors, and the doors and windows will remain uncovered. It was felt that leaving the donors’ names visible was important.

The extra insulation and modern siding, with extra caulking to seal out possible drafts, should help make the building warmer and easier to heat and make it more energy efficient.

The library staff had input in choosing the colors and library manager Suzanne Moore is very pleased with how the color combinations complement each other, incorporating the old colors that will still be seen.

The $39,000 cost of the upgrade being done by RT Weather Proofing & Decking is coming from town funds.
