O’Mara commends $25K awarded to Marple library

MARPLE, Nov. 8 – State Rep. Jennifer O’Mara, D-Delaware, applauds Marple Public Library for securing a $25,000 grant to go toward heightening the facility’s security.

Funding comes from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and will be used to purchase and install surveillance/security monitoring equipment.

“Library patrons range from elementary school students coming in for tutoring to seniors searching through the stacks, and it’s a place where everyone should feel safe,” O’Mara said. “I’m grateful that this funding has been awarded to the Marple library and will go toward bettering an establishment that’s dedicated to both learning and community building.”

“Marple library is grateful for Representative O'Mara, her staff and Marple Township's assistance toward the installation of a new surveillance system. We are proud to add this additional safety measure as patrons come by to enjoy all our library has to offer," Marple Public Library Director LaTanya Burno said.
