AFTER 35 YEARS, THE LAMPPOSTS ARE BACK AND BRIGHTLY LIGHTING THE LIBRARY FRONT PORCH!
The lampposts, which were originally installed in 1904, were turned on at a lighting ceremony at the Tucker Free Library on December 13, 2017. Library trustees and community members, excited to see the globes aglow, counted down to the moment when library director Lynn Piotrowicz and project foreman Keith DeMoura flipped the switch. Discovered by library personnel while cleaning the attic eight years ago, staff members began searching for ways to fund the restoration and return of the architectural feature on the front porch. Funding for this project was made possible through a grant from the Moose Plate Program & New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources, and the State Council on the Arts. They were repaired by the Conant Metal & Light Co. in Burlington, VT. Community members and library supporters, Keith and Nancy DeMoura along with Marc Aucoin helped spearhead the effort to return the lamps, working together with Piotrowicz to return this critical architectural feature, too long absent from the library’s front entryway.
