The West Seneca Public Library is among 26 facilities to receive a $1,500 grant from state Sen. Patrick M. Gallivan, R-Elma.
The libraries are sharing a total of $39,000, which Gallivan secured during the recently-completed legislative session.
“Our public libraries provide important services in communities across the district,” Gallivan said. “They connect residents to the larger world through books, videos, computers and the Internet, and allow people of ages to conduct research or advance their education.”
