Herrin announces $4.9K grant for Chester County Library System

State Representative Dianne Herrin, D-Chester, today announced that the Chester County Library System will receive an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Professional Development Training Grant from the Office of Commonwealth Libraries totaling $4,947.85.

“The Chester County Library System has been a vital part of this community for over 50 years,” Herrin said. “We are fortunate enough to be part of a library system of committed people recognized for their knowledge, inspiration, and for ensuring opportunity for all. This money will directly help the system – which includes the historic West Chester Public Library – carry out its mission of ensuring every resident has equal access to exceptional opportunities to learn, read, create, and connect with big ideas that help us all create a better life and improve our community.”

This grant will help library employees attend virtual professional development programs in principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion – principles that the library system integrates into all of its practices and work functions.
