I was born and raised in New Canaan and I am in the business of restoring and protecting historic structures. My father, Philip Rose, started, developed and ran the New Canaan YMCA for 30 years. It is simply unnecessary and counter to the interests of a New England community to destroy a landmark building such as the Library. Architecture is the art of meeting challenges presented by the land, regulation, the neighborhood, and the client, and history.

David George Scannell, 81

David George Scannell, 81, of New Canaan, CT, passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on March 12, 2021. David was born on April 24, 1939 to the late Joseph and Mary Jollymore Scannell. He was the loving husband of Susan Lloyd Scannell for 52 years. David grew up in a tight loving family in Worcester, MA with two rambunctious brothers and a doting baby sister.  Two things were clear from the very beginning: he held himself to a strict moral code, and he could sing. He sang solos for the bishop at the St Paul’s Cathedral boy’s choir.

Letters to the Editor

The following letters were submitted in the past week to NewCanaanite.com. ***

While we are advocates of building a new, modernized New Canaan Library, we are also in favor of protecting and repurposing the 1913 Library Building, an historic and architecturally significant connection to New Canaan’s past. The two buildings can live side by side. Why would the NCL demolish the 1913 building and make a “town green” overlooking a parking lot and the most accident-prone corner in New Canaan? In the process, the NCL is erasing a cultural landmark that means so much to so many, and is creating a hugely divisive issue that will affect its own fundraising efforts going forward.
