Residents packed the meeting room at Southington Public Library to capacity Thursday as they heard explanations of what either an expanded library facility or a new building would bring to the town. These residents got a look at the library’s priorities for a new or expanded library and how space would be allocated and then had an opportunity to give feedback. She said that building was constructed in 1974 and hadn’t seen major renovations since. The current building is also not ADA accessible and does not meet fire codes. She said the library has spent $20,000 this year alone in making sure that aging HVAC systems were working and that the building has been designated as a cooling and warming center by the town.
