Artist's rendering of expanded Library.
The total cost of the Library project is estimated at $12M.
--$5M will be reimbursed by a state grant.
--The remaining $7M will be funded via the debt exclusion override passed by Scituate voters on Dec. 14, 2103. The override will cost the average Scituate home (valued at $469,000) $46/year (or $3.83/month) for 20 years.
--Additional funding from private donors of up to $2M will lower the cost to the taxpayer even more.
