The town's library will be able to buy nearly $3,000 worth of books and materials, thanks to a refund from Norfolk County.
The Franklin Finance Committee received a $2,955 refund from the county because the town had been paying into a "dog fund" even though the county no longer employs any animal control personnel.
A letter accompanying the check said, "Since the County is no longer in the 'dog' business...we are enclosing a check for a portion of the Dog Fund account attributable to your municipality."
The Finance Committee redirected the funds to the library expense budget in early October.
