iBerkshires.com reports Hoosac Valley Regional School District is converting the former Cheshire School's library into a remote reading assistance space.
"We have staff currently working in the space to support students with reading remotely and decided now was a good time to clean it out and utilize it properly," Superintendent Aaron Dean said last week.
The cleaning of the space came up during a special Selectmen's meeting on Dec. 18. Selectman Robert Ciskowski asked about a trash roll-off near the cafeteria entrance of the school.
After the school district consolidated and closed the elementary school, the district decided to keep its central office in the vacant building. The ownership reverted to the town, which leased space to the district along with some other tenants.
Ciskowski said although there was nothing of substantial value in the room, there were books donated from the Cheshire community as well as bookcases.
