Candidate, library information sessions tonight

SALISBURY — Tonight, voters have two chances to learn more about issues vital to making informed decisions at the April 30 town election.

At 6 p.m., the Salisbury Chamber of Commerce offers voters a chance to meet the candidates running for the office of selectmen and moderator when it gathers at Splash lounge, located on Broadway at Salisbury Beach Center. The Chamber has waived its usual fee and this event is free to the public. Those intending to go should call 978-465-3581.

At 7 p.m., the Trustees of the Salisbury Library will hold an information night concerning the $3.2 million proposal to build a larger library in town, which will appear on the April 30 ballot as an override question.The event takes place at the Atlantic Breeze Condominium Clubhouse, 188 Beach Road.

The $3.2 million in bonds would constitute the town’s share of the $7 million building project, which will be funded by an additional $3.8 million in state grant money.

Guest speakers knowledgeable on the new plan will answer questions.

For those who can’t make this meeting, there will be an open forum on the new library proposal on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in Colchester Auditorium on the second floor at Town Hall.
