Regrading the grant to the Friends of the South End Library, it is important to note that the funds have not yet been disbursed and we do not know when they will be. Therefore, it cannot be said that the door is "about to" be installed. We must wait for the disbursement, then BPL has to put the project out for bid, etc. We are thrilled the money has been earmarked for this project, but a timeline for completion has yet to be established. FOSEL will keep everyone updated as this exciting project nears completion. Thanks!
