The Bridgewater Public Library has a new trustee. Eric Gibson replaces Frances Jefferies on the Library's Board. Eric is a graduate of Bridgewater State College and has a Masters Degree from Lesley University. He has taught school in Bridgewater for 17 years and is currently teaching 4th grade at the Williams Intermediate School.

When asked about his reasons for running for library trustee, Eric responded, "I decided to run for library trustee because I see our local library as a vital part of a thriving community. A library provides immeasurable opportunities and resources for its citizen. My children were fortunate enough to have been able to experience the Bridgewater Public Library when it offered many educational opportunities and experiences for young children."

Eric goes went on to discuss the challenges ahead. "My family has found great pleasure in the library and it saddens me deeply to see the drastic cuts to this institution. I hold firmly to the belief that despite these difficult budgetary times our community will rally around the library and a bright future is on the horizon. I am excited to have been given the opportunity to be a part of the library's future."
