The Old Southworth Library on Elm Street in Dartmouth is the new home of the Dartmouth Cultural Center, Inc. After months of discussions, the Cultural Center group was recently awarded the lease by the Dartmouth Select Board. The group is now planning dozens of programs and classes for adults, everything from poetry writing to photography and cooking. Julia Law and Kathleen Del Sordo visit Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss their effort to win the lease, and what will happen at the Old Southworth to keep the building up and running.
