ALLEGRONE CONSTRUCTION from Lenox has been determined to be the lowest bidder for the construction project. 

Today, 8/15, the Monterey Selectboard listened to the advice of P3, the owner's project manager, and the vote of the Monterey Library Trustees, who both recommended that Allegrone be asked to submit the required paperwork to qualify for writing the contract. The selectboard sent a letter to Allegrone and they have five days to respond.  Contract negotiations should start very soon. 

Our next big project is to move the contents of the library out.  When dates are confirmed we will get the word out and need volunteers.  Stay tuned!

Thanks to the Town of Monterey for such great support to get this project to this stage.  We will let you know when the groundbreaking is scheduled.


We have gotten the permits from the Board of Health, the Planning Board, the Conservation Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals.  National Grid has started the utility pole work necessary for the project to move forward.  We have marked and planted the site improvement and riverfront mitigation on Gould Farm's hayfield. 

Help the Friends raise $200,000 to support the construction of the new library!
