When state legislators Senator Karen Spilka (D-Middlesex) and Representative Paul Loscocco (R-Middlesex) visited Medway selectmen this week they talked about writing an alternative ending to the unhappy story about Medway's public library.
The library was decertified by state library commissioners last month because the town had slashed its funding during a fiscal crisis. Decertification means Medway residents may no longer borrow books from neighboring towns, either individually or through the interlibrary loan process.
Selectman Glenn Trindade said he's upset that residents were punished with the loss of library privileges because town officials were following the state Department of Revenue's advice for righting the town's financial ship.
Loscocco told selectmen he would seek reconsideration of the commissioners' decision before trying to file special legislation to amend the situation. The latter, he said, would be a more time consuming and difficult process.
