You may have noticed the “Thermometer” on the new library building site in town showing the funds we have available for the new building. It shows over 1.5 million dollars is available for the new building. Things are looking to get even better.
In addition to the $1.5 million, we hope to receive a $250,000 State grant through the State and Municipal Facilities Program. We will continue to apply for grants through the State Aid for Public Library Construction administered by the Mid Hudson Library System. This year we will apply for Phase 2 (Initial building construction) and the following year for Phase 3 (Project completion).
