Libraries to re-open?

WELLESLEY

A new chapter may be opening for two libraries in Wellesley.

The town's two neighborhood branch libraries closed their doors in June after voters rejected a tax increase to keep them open.

Now the Wellesley Free Library's board of trustees wants to find out whether residents are willing to come up with donations to re-open them; otherwise the buildings will be turned over to the town.

The board has scheduled a hearing on the branches for 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Wakelin Meeting Room of the main library, 530 Washington Street.
