MA Library backers raise thousands for branches

Inspiring News from MA, where supporters of Wellesley's two endangered branch libraries will present at least $48,000 in donations in the hopes of keeping the Wellesley Hills and Fells buildings open for one more year.The contributions -- collected over the past two weeks in a flurry of fund-raising, were approaching 70 percent of the $66,000 needed to keep the branches open another year, Chris Cannon, chairman of the Committee to Save the Wellesley Branch Libraries, said Thursday, adding that he hoped that a weekend push could bring them near the top.
