The Seaport just might get a library after all.

After pushing, with little apparent success, to get a public library included in plans to develop 12.5 remaining acres of the booming district, State Representative Nick Collins tucked $10 million into a state spending bill recently passed by the House.

That doesn’t mean it’s a done deal. The money will need approval by the Senate and the signature of Governor Charlie Baker.
