BETHLEHEM, N.H. (AP) - The town of Bethlehem, N.H., hopes to start building a new library this spring.
Voters on Tuesday approved a new Bethlehem Public Library. It will be located at the site of the former Maplehurst Hotel, which was demolished last year.
The Caledonian-Record reports the library would replace the existing one in the Town Hall building. It's expected to be open in the fall.
A longtime library patron bequeathed the $1.5 million needed for construction.
