The town's state legislators have co-sponsored a bond bill that includes $2.4 million in funding for a new public library in town. The effort is part of legislation that would provide $100 million in funding for public library construction in communities across the state.
A similar bond bill did not pass in the previous legislative session. All three of Millis' state legislators -- Senator Scott Brown and Reps. Richard Ross and David Linsky -- are sponsoring the bill.
Millis is currently ninth on the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners' waiting list for funding, based on the building's design, cost and benefit to the community.
