Greenwich Library to rename library in honor of Sandy victims

NEW YORK (AP) Greenwich, Connecticut, is planning to rename a library that honors the victims of the 2010 Boston Marathon bombings to honor the victims’ families.

The library, the Greenwich-based Greenwich Public Library, will honor the Sandy victims on Monday with a memorial wall, said spokeswoman Nicole Meeks.

The library is scheduled to open Monday with an introductory lecture about the victims.

The names of the victims will be added in future years, she said.

A statement from the library, which is a joint venture of Connecticut Public Schools and the city of Greenwich on the Connecticut side of the Hudson River, said the Wall Street Journal first reported the plans.
