New library has empty shelves

Anonymous Patron writes Sad News From Bellignham, MA When the town prepared to open its renovated middle school, the School Building Committee found only four boxes of books to stock its new library.

“We had no library books at all. We had some fiction to start (with), but not that much,” Elaine D’Alfonso, principal of Bellingham Memorial Middle School, said this week.

As the fiscal 2006 budget season begins, D’Alfonso and other school officials hope additional cash and a full-time library/media director will improve the library.”
