Hanbidge applauds $90,000 grant awarded to North Wales Area Library

HARRISBURG, March 9 – State Rep. Liz Hanbidge, D-Montgomery, today announced the awarding of $90,000 in grant funding to the North Wales Area public library. 

These grants were awarded through the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Bureau of Library Development, which is funded from a portion of the state’s realty transfer tax.

“Unfettered access to high-quality public libraries has been a part of our commonwealth’s story since its inception,” Hanbidge said. “These grant dollars will go toward ensuring residents in the 61st Legislative District continue to have an avenue to obtain the vital services offered by our public libraries here in Montgomery County.”

The award will be used to offset the cost of necessary repairs to the building, including replacing the roof and insulation, with the goal of making the library more energy efficient.

Anyone with questions may contact Hanbidge’s office at 610-277-3230.
