Abutters to Belmont’s Benton Branch are up in arms that the nearly century old library might again be used as a library. They’re pressuring the Select Board to cut the operating hours by more than half: from 50 hours a week to just 20. Sign a petition supporting more hours for our kids and turn up Monday night to the Select Board meeting to voice your support for more Children’s Room hours.
It’s not deja vu: the Belmont Middle- and High School Building Committee is again seriously contemplating eliminating a rooftop solar array from the project, citing concerns about cost overruns. A vote is scheduled for Friday morning (February 11) at 8 AM. Please attend and show your support for the photovoltaic solar array.

She has served as president of the Butler School PTA and is the Principal of Megmor Research and Evaluation LLC, which provides services to help organizations assess the impact of Science Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) programming.
