TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Assemblyman Tom Abinanti (D-Greenburgh/Mt. Pleasant), Chair of the Assembly Committee on Libraries & Education Technology, announced that the New York State Library has awarded construction grants to four public libraries in his 92nd Assembly District.

The grants, which are supported by a $14 million capital fund appropriation in the 2014-2015 state budget for the construction and renovation of public libraries and public library systems in New York State, are being awarded to the Warner (Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow), Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson and Greenburgh public libraries.

“I am pleased that these libraries were recognized and selected to receive these much-needed grants,” Abinanti said. “Local libraries are critical to our communities and I will continue to be an advocate for more state investments to the library system.”

The Warner Public Library will receive $155,589 for the Roof Replacement Project – providing the library with a fully functional roof and drainage system, protecting the building and its contents.

The Dobbs Ferry Public Library will receive $25,591 to retrofit or replace existing light fixtures with energy efficient, long lasting LED fixtures.

The Hastings-on-Hudson Public Library will receive $19,107 for the purchase and installation of a Mitsubishi Hyper Inverter heating (cooling) pump system for the expanded and renovated library community room.

The Greenburgh Public Library will receive $14,661 for the installation of a glass partition and door in the passage between the adult reading room and the teen section of the library – alleviating noise issues and increasing patron comfort and staff use of both areas.
