SENATOR GALLIVAN ANNOUNCES FUNDING FOR LOCAL LIBRARIES

 

GRANTS TO SUPPORT TECHNOLOGY BASED PROGRAMS   

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan (R-C-I, Elma) announced grants for more than two dozen public libraries throughout his 59th State Senate District, which covers all of Wyoming County and portions of Erie, Livingston and Monroe counties.  In all, 26 libraries will share a total of $72,500.

“Public libraries continue to play a vital role in communities across the state, providing residents with free access to books, videos, computers and the internet.  As technology advances, it is critical that our libraries keep pace in order to provide a place where patrons can do research, advance their education or write a resume.  These grants will help to do that,” Gallivan said.

Gallivan secured the library funding during the recently completed legislative session.  The grants are to be used for technology related expenditures, including the purchase of computer equipment and software, or to support training programs for patrons.
