Sunapee Library Trustees, Sunapee Library Foundation members, Architect Peter Tennant and construction manager Trumbull Nelson were on hand to take part in the $2.7 million new Abbott Library ground breaking ceremonies, but resting on the golden shovels was a unicorn wearing a bib with Abbott Library. Peter Urbach, library trustee says the unicorn is a good luck mascot the trustees adopted to help cheer them up during the tough times. Urbach has been pushing for a new library for the past 12 years. At its town meeting in March voters approved a $975,000 bond to help finance construction. In 2012 an identical article was defeated by a handful of votes. The Abbott Library Foundation raised $1.2 million dollars for the project. The new library is expected to be completed in June or July of 2014.
