The Lewisboro Library will receive a $25,000 “bullet aid” grant that will be put toward the library’s planned expansion, State Sen. Greg Ball said in a press release on Monday, July 29.
“Working with local partners, including Supervisor [Peter] Parsons and former Supervisor [Charles] Duffy, I am so happy to announce these funds for the Lewisboro Library,” said Mr. Ball, whose 40th District includes Lewisboro and Katonah. “The Lewisboro Library serves as an educational center for the town, a community center for residents to gather and also serves as the location for their Town Board meetings. I will continue to fight for the residents of Lewisboro to deliver more grants to bring as much of our tax money home, where it belongs.”
The library also recently received a $36,710 construction grant that helped bring it closer to its goal of renovating its building in South Salem.
“The Lewisboro Library is in the process of raising money to renovate and expand our building. We hope to break ground in September,” said Cindy Rubio, library director. “This grant will be invaluable. We are very grateful to Sen. Ball for his help.”
