Assemblyman John Ceretto has announced that the Nioga Library System will receive more than $450,000 in construction grants to support the continued efforts of local public libraries to educate and enlighten. The grants are supported by a $14 million capital-fund appropriation in the 2011 state budget, which Ceretto helped to pass.
Local public libraries receiving grants include:
"Supporting local libraries should be a priority if we are to help educate the next generation of New Yorkers," Ceretto said. "These grants will help provide the funding needed to reduce energy waste at libraries, reducing the tax burden on local residents, and also make them more accessible for seniors and those with disabilities. I was proud to secure these grants."
