  • Letter: Move is right decision for Falmouth library

  • Letter: Writer wrong about Falmouth school design

    Lisa Preney misunderstands the Educational Specifications for Falmouth's new elementary school when she concludes in her May 12 letter that the new school's library offsets the needs, or replaces any functions, of the Falmouth Memorial Library. The new elementary school was designed to per...
