Smithtown Library Utilizes Funding Secured By Senator Flanagan

Senator John Flanagan (2nd Senate District) announced that his office has secured $10,000 in state funding for The Smithtown Library as part of the 2014-15 State budget.  The funding will help offset the cost of the purchase of a new carpet cleaner for the library.

The new Tennant 1610 Dual Technology Carpet Extractor is a deep cleaning system that will protect the carpeting in the library from wear and tear.  The purchase of this new machine will protect the investment of the taxpayers and the quality of the buildings, all of which recently underwent significant renovations.
