This Week in Chester Library History — May 1-7, 1976

This week sees the New Building Committee meeting with the architect, Charles Fitch of Metuchen. The Library Board of Trustees and Fitch signed an agreement (composed by the law offices of Orr and Bock of Morristown) which specified the architect’s services, the owner’s responsibilities, payments, personnel expenses, and other legal matters. Thus began the official journey toward a much larger and efficient space to hold the Chester Free Public Library.
