the Lewiston Public Library Thursday received $100,000 from the New York Power Authority to assist the library's capital expansion program.

C.D. "Rapp" Rappleyea, the Power Authority's chief executive officer, announced the authority will install high-efficiency lighting at the library as part of its Energy Services Program. The project will improve lighting at the library and will save nearly $3,000 annually on
electrical bills.

The $100,000 contribution fulfills a commitment made previously as part of the Niagara Upgrade Community
Improvement Fund.

Work on the lighting project is expected to begin this summer. The total cost of the project is nearly $30,000. Gov. Pataki also has authorized a special grant of almost $10,000 for the project from the Petroleum Overcharge Restitution Fund, reducing the library's cost to under $20,000.
