Ullman announces $80,735 grant for Riegelsville Public Library

DOYLESTOWN, Oct. 18 – State Rep. Wendy Ullman, D-Bucks, today announced that the Riegelsville Public Library will receive $80,735 in state funding toward replacing the original slate roof and single-pane windows and repairing masonry cracks and minor interior water damage.

“As a former teacher, I’m very glad that this funding will help restore a beloved library that offers a wealth of information and serves as a community hub for young and old,” Ullman said. “This grant money will extend the life of this important part of our community.”

The funds are from the highly competitive Keystone Grant Program.

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.
