Tempers have erupted in the town of Rockingham over a decision to close the public library during renovations this summer.
The plan has sparked opposition from residents who say that closing the much-loved library is unnecessary.
The Rockingham Public library is finishing up a $3 million, voter-approved renovation.
The project came to a halt last fall when workers walked off the job because they hadn’t been paid. The president of Baybutt Construction, the general contractor, later filed for bankruptcy.
