The first major renovation of the historic Stockbridge Library, Museum and Archives since 1937 is moving ahead, now that Allegrone Construction Co. of Pittsfield has been awarded the $2.5 million contract for the project.

"Work is officially under way," said library director Katie O'Neil. A capital campaign for the massive reconstruction has raised more than half of its $3.2 million goal, she told The Eagle.

The library, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in August, is awaiting a decision from the state on its application for historic renovation tax credits, which could yield as much as $500,000 for qualified restoration expenses. The private fundraising campaign was led by a $250,000 gift from the Jack and Jane Fitzpatrick Trust.

Allegrone, with a long history of historic site renovations such as the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, was awarded the contract as the low bidder for the project, which was designed by Centerline Architects & Planners of Bennington, Vt.
