West Tisbury’s new library grand opening March 22


Nelia Decker and Beth Kramer, brimming with excitement, have issued an invitation.

“It may be hard to believe but the new library is almost finished. You are warmly invited to attend our grand opening celebration Saturday, March 22, from 10-5 pm.

“Behold the majestic skylights. Marvel at the purple shelves and chartreuse kitchen cabinets. Gaze out the many windows. Revel in the voluminous space and feel proud of your efforts.”

Who can resist?

Docents will distribute maps and give tours. There will be live music and events for all ages, plus refreshments, according to the library press statement, and the event is free and open to all.

“Words can’t quite express how grateful we are to everyone for their patience, hard work, and perseverance,” Ms. Decker and Ms. Kramer wrote. “We thank the town of West Tisbury, the West Tisbury Library Building Committee, the Friends of the West Tisbury Library, the West Tisbury Library Foundation, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and so many, many, more. The project has truly been a team effort – we couldn’t have done it without your help and cooperation. Thank you.”
