Readshaw announces $61,750 grant for Brentwood Library

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 17 – State Rep. Harry Readshaw, D-Allegheny, today announced that the Brentwood Library will receive $61,750 in state funding toward replacing the roof.

The funds are from the highly competitive Keystone Grant Program.

“I am very excited to see this funding come through to aid in the repair of our existing library roof to extend the life of this facility,” Readshaw said. “This library has been a valued destination for years and will continue to serve as an important part of our community.”

Keystone Grants are provided through the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund. Grants of up to $750,000 may be used for planning, acquisition, construction and rehabilitation of public libraries, and must be matched dollar-for-dollar. Examples of fundable projects include, but are not limited to disability access improvements, new roof, replacement windows, energy efficient upgrades to heating and ventilation systems, facility expansion and new construction.

In 12 counties across the commonwealth, 19 public libraries were awarded a total of $3.25 million in Keystone Grants.
