DiPietro Announces Library Aid For 2017

May 30, 2017

Assemblyman David DiPietro (R,C-East Aurora) announced a new round of funding for essential library repairs and upgrades within his district. In total, the New York State Education Department/New York State Library have approved 216 construction awards to public library systems in legislative districts throughout New York State.

In the 147th District, Assemblyman DiPietro is proud to announce:

  • Boston Free Library will receive $3,106 for interior and exterior rehab of their facilities;
  • Perry Public Library will receive $10,807 to replace their existing air conditioning system;
  • Stevens Memorial Library in Attica will receive $303,233 to upgrade the back entrance to be ADA compliant, and create a safer sidewalk doorway at the front entrance; and
  • Warsaw Public Library will receive $9,004 to improve access to both the elevator and fire alarm control panel.

“These awards will go an incredibly long way in bringing our libraries up to legal code, rehabbing their appearances and keeping libraries at the center of our communities,” DiPietro said. “I will continue to fight for additional resources throughout the end of our legislative session to ensure our libraries receive their fair share of our tax dollars. We must continue to provide these vital resources to our community learning centers.”
