Construction for Bancroft’s new library is expected to start in 2024 and will take a couple years to complete.
The Town shared those details in a media release on Friday.
Bancroft received funding for construction in 2019, but the pandemic and supply chain challenges delayed the project’s start.
The town’s also still working with developers to explore a housing component to the planned building, given the “extreme lack of affordable housing in our community,” the release said.
Some underground infrastructure work for the library took place last summer, as part of the Main Street Makeover project.
The new library building and housing project is known as North Hastings Inspiration Place. It’s slated for an area off Cleak Avenue.
