WATERFORD — The Waterford Library will hold its annual meeting May 17 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the recent renovation of the century-old library.

James Long, who along with his sons Eric and Darin Long, have just completed the renovation of the library that was designed by noted Portland architect John Calvin Stevens in 1911.

The renovation included reinforcement of the main structural beam, adding insulation to reduce energy costs, constructing a small kitchen and heating on the second floor to provide year-round reading and meeting space, additional shelving and the repair and painting of walls and ceilings.

The work, which was planned from a 2006 master architectural plan by the Portland architectural firm of Barba + Wheelock, was funded by grants from the Davis Family Foundation and the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation to address the safety issues and give the building a face-lift for its 100th anniversary.

The public in encouraged to attend the meeting.
