Funding to be used for library improvement project
Rep. Anita Astorino Kulik March 9, 2022 | 3:37 PM
CORAOPOLIS, March 9 – A $154,493 grant will fund improvements to the Andrew Carnegie Free Library in Carnegie, announced state Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny.
Kulik said the funding will finance half of the Andrew Carnegie Free Library’s project to convert unimproved space on a partial floor into a meeting program space.
“The Carnegie Carnegie has had a rich history as the “beacon on the hill” since 1901, but its impact goes beyond books and learning,” Kulik said. “The library is a welcoming place for the community to gather for entertainment, job fairs, art shows and so much more. This funding will provide a boost improving a space for more people to enjoy for years to come.”
Nearly $5.3 million in Keystone Grants for Public Library Facilities were awarded to 21 public libraries across the state, including the Andrew Carnegie Free Library. The grants are funded by a portion of the state’s realty transfer tax and administered by the state Department of Education's Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
