SHRUB OAK, N.Y. -- The John C. Hart Memorial Library in Shrub Oak is receiving more than $60,000 to upgrade the children's room, according to recently announced state grants.
Seven libraries in the 40th State Senate District are receiving grants totaling $231,420 for construction and renovations, according to a news release from state Sen. Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson). The Hart Memorial Library is set to receive $61,914 for the library's "Children’s Room Project to enlarge the Children’s Story Hour room by 45 percent, install a self-checkout system, consolidate and expand computer access, enhance the Toddler area, update the reference desk and allow more natural light in," according to the release.
“I couldn’t be happier to announce these grants for libraries across my district," Ball said in the release. "This will help many of these libraries make much needed upgrades and provide the best possible service and technology to the residents they serve. I will continue to fight for our libraries and education system to bring as much of our tax money back from Albany, home where it belongs.”
Other libraries receiving grants are the Croton Free Library in Croton-on-Hudson, Hendrick Hudson Free Library in Montrose, Hiram Halle Memorial Library in Pound Ridge, Lewisboro Library in South Salem and Ruth Keeler Memorial Library in North Salem.
