One of the two Wellesley branch libraries that were closed due to lack of funding last year will soon be reopening its doors, official say.
Wellesley Free Library Director Janice Coduri gained the Selectmen’s approval last week for a plan to allow a nearby day care center to lease some space in the Fells Branch library building near the Hardy Elementary School.
Coduri said the short-term lease will enable the library to raise enough money to re-open part of the Fells Branch as a library as early as January. Originally build in 1858 as a one-room schoolhouse, the Fells Branch is the oldest public building still in use in the town of Wellesley.
Both the Fells and Wellesley Hills branches were closed in June of last year. Town Meeting will need to approve the lease at its gathering in the fall.
