Mt. Lebanon Public Library secures more than $200,000 in state funding

Money will go toward rehab projects at facility

HARRISBURG, Oct. 17 – The Mt. Lebanon Public Library will undergo HVAC and related upgrades following the disbursement of $215,164 in state funding to the local library, announced state Rep. Dan Miller, D-Allegheny.

Miller said the Keystone grant, awarded through the Pennsylvania Department of Education, was one of 19 awarded today to public libraries across the commonwealth.

“It takes more than a substantial catalog of reading material for a library to function properly. The building itself has to be held to a certain standard so that it can adequately accommodate those visiting the library,” Miller said. “But doing so cost money, which is why I’m happy to announce this substantial grant to Mt. Lebanon Public Library, money of which will help fund rehabilitation projects at this facility.”

Miller said the grant will fund replacement of the library’s carpeting and HVAC system, and include adding security access controls to interior and exterior doors.

Keystone grants are competitive grants funded through the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund.
