In good news for the North Country’s libraries, the New York State Library has announced it’s awarding $200,000 in grants to six in the region. State Assemblywoman Addie Russell, who supported the funding in the sate budget, said in a press release yesterday that it will “allow patrons to continue using critical resources such as the Internet, job-training programs and tax filing services. Upgrades and enhancements to facilities will ensure that North Country families are getting the most out of their library experience.”

The funding will go to cover various construction and renovation projects; here’s a list of who’s getting it:

Jefferson County: Cape Vincent Community Library, Hawn Memorial Library, Lyme Free Library

St. Lawrence County: Canton Free Library, Ogdensburg Public Library, Potsdam Public Library

Happy reading!
