Grant assists Andes Library


State Senator John J. Bonacic announced last week that the Four County Library System will receive over $99,000 in state construction grants for renovations to the Andes Public Library.
The grant funds were provided by the New York State Legislature in the 2007-08 state budget and will help local libraries and library systems to build new libraries, create additions, update electrical wiring to accommodate today’s technology, meet energy efficient standards and improve handicap accessibility.
The Andes Public Library will receive $99,946 for the reconstruction of the first and second floors of the existing building including walls, floors, ceilings, electrical, lighting, insulation, and to install a new stairway to the second floor.
