CAPE ELIZABETH — Three groups may occupy the former Spurwink School instead of just one.

The Spurwink School Reuse Committee has been accepting and reviewing proposals for use of the space since spring. The 166-year-old building served as the temporary home of Thomas Memorial Library while the library was being renovated, but has been unoccupied since February.

The committee has been considering two proposals: one from the School Department to create a learning hub, and the other from the Cape Elizabeth Historical Preservation Society to archive and display materials. On Oct. 5, the School Department suggested combining the two proposals to share the space.

It was also suggested the library be included, so it can use the space for various needs it may have. The three groups on Nov. 9 will present a plan to the committee outlining how this arrangement might work.
