POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – New York State has awarded grants to seven libraries in the area and among them is the Hiram Halle Library in Pound Ridge.
“I couldn’t be happier to announce these grants across my district,” said State Sen. Greg Ball, who represents the 40th State Senate District. “This will help many of them to make much needed upgrades and provide the best possible service and technology to the residents they serve.”
The grants are provided through a $14 million capital fund appropriation for public libraries included in the 2012 State Budget.
The Hiram Halle Library was awarded $19,255 toward using Hardiplank siding and insulated windows to replace existing railing, siding, windows and trim which is saturated with lead paint.
The Hiram Halle Library is at 271 Westchester Ave. in Pound Ridge.
