Letter: Commending the First Selectman for Comments in Support of Library


We would like to commend our First Selectman Kevin Moynihan for his comments in support of the New Canaan Library and the potential for $10 million of investment from the town.

The library serves a vital function in the center of our community for all of our residents.  

The vision for the new library is nothing short of spectacular and would be transformative for New Canaan. Even in these increasingly digital times, a strong library is a community resource that would energize downtown.  

The library team is working hard to find private support and has a lot of momentum. Support from the town is absolutely critical and it is inspiring for those of us committed to contributing to see that our first selectman understands the importance of this project. We hope that the rest of the town’s leadership and residents can help make this project a reality.


Rich & Michelle Riley
