Arlington Center for the Arts

The ACA’s big news, which they will be talking about at Town Day, is that they are headed for a new home. (The old building is a town building that’s being repurposed to be a school, due to high student population at present in Arlington. )

The ACA is kicking off a Capital Campaign to raise $600,000 to fund renovations to make the new building into an arts center. The new space will be the two floors above the Arlington Senior Center, housed behind Town Hall in the old Central School Building. It’s a very cool space, but currently it’s configured to be office space, so it needs a total renovation and makeover to become studios and arts classrooms, and a gallery and event space.

Robbins Library

Tuesday 9/6, the Friends of Robbins Library will begin accepting book, DVD and audio book donations for our annual Town Day Book Sale (Sept 17). Please put donations in the big blue bin near the Circulation Desk at the Robbins Library. All proceeds benefit Arlington's libraries! Questions? Are you available to help sort books, or at Town Day itself? Contact Amy McElroy at 781-648-4109; ae65@verizon.net
