Committee approves Vera Adams library memorial

WEYMOUTH —The town will officially name one of the sunny reading rooms at the new Tufts Library in memory of lifelong resident Vera Adams.

The town’s memorial committee on Monday swiftly and unanimously approved Mayor Robert Hedlund's request for the memorial, which architects will incorporate into the final design plans for a new, 50,000-square-foot main library at the Broad Street site.

Adams, a 77-year-old widow, was shot to death in her home on Torrey Street moments after Weymouth police Sgt. Michael Chesna was killed nearby on July 15.

In his request for the memorial, Hedlund said that he made the recommendation for the tribute after careful consideration and consulting with friends and family members of Adams.

"This will be an appropriate and fitting tribute to a woman who displayed a passion for reading and love for children throughout her life," Hedlund wrote. "Vera loved this community, and I believe she would be proud having her memory associated with the many gatherings that will be held at the library in years to come.
