12 Erie County libraries share $120,000 in state funding

Twelve libraries in Erie County are receiving a total of $120,000 in state funding, state Sen. Christopher Jacobs, R-Buffalo, announced.

Libraries receiving $10,000 apiece include the Crane, Niagara, North Park and Riverside branches in Buffalo, Angola, City of Tonawanda, Grand Island Memorial, Hamburg, Lakeshore in Hamburg, Orchard Park, and the Kenilworth and Kenmore branches in the Town of Tonawanda.

The funding to the libraries comes in the form of unrestricted aid, meaning they will be allowed to use these funds for programming, capital expenses, new initiatives, technology and computer upgrades or additions to their respective collections.

“From preserving our history to opening up new worlds, libraries are critically important institutions in our community that we must continue to support,” Jacobs said.
