Selectmen said last night that Medway is in talks with Franklin about regionalizing library services.
During a discussion about the municipal budget, selectmen Chairman Glenn Trindade mentioned that the board wants to add $42,000 to the town budget to pay for expenses related to a merger.
"This is only a recommendation," said Selectman Dennis Crowley. "The library trustees have to vote to approve this amount."
Trindade said that in the tentative plan, the libraries would alternate their operating days so that they would each be open three days a week, but residents of both towns would have access to a library six hours a day, six days a week by going to whichever one was open.
