AMHERST – Architects hired to design an expanded and renovated Jones Library will provide an update on the project to residents for the first time next week.

Representatives from Finegold Alexander Architects of Boston and project manager Colliers International of Hartford will make a presentation to the Jones Library Design Subcommittee at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Woodbury Room on the lower level of the library.

Library Director Sharon Sharry said this will be the first opportunity for residents to learn more about how the project got to this point and what will happen in the future.

People who attend will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The subcommittee will continue meeting every other week throughout the spring and summer to get regular updates.

The first meeting will be taped by Amherst Media and broadcast both on community access and on its website.

Meanwhile, Town Meeting this month will take up issues related to the library project, including a proposed rezoning of a portion of the adjacent Amherst History Museum property to general business. That would allow the historical society to sell a portion of its property to the library.
