Brindisi secures $125,000 grand for Mid-York Library System

Funding will be used toward roof replacement at Lincoln Avenue facility

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi today announced he has secured $125,000 through the State and Municipal Facilities Grant Program for the Mid-York Library System in Utica.

Brindisi says the funding is being used for the replacement of the system’s roof.  The project began in June, and is expected to be completed before the end of the year.

“Library services are more essential to community members than ever, but in many cases, the buildings they are in are aging, and need renovations.  Providing the funding to renovate Mid-York’s headquarters will allow it to continue to house its valuable collections and programs and accommodate visitors safely for many years to come,” said Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.

““Our existing flat roof is over 25 years old-far exceeding its life expectancy and its ability to protect the building’s valuable contents from water damage and heavy snow loads.  The utility savings realized will benefit our 43 member libraries and the taxpayers they serve in Herkimer, Madison, and Oneida Counties by allowing us to improve and expand library services. On behalf of the library community Mid York serves, I want to thank Assemblyman Brindisi for his efforts in securing the funds to help cover the costs of our much needed roof replacement,” said Wanda Bruchis, Executive Director of the Mid York Library System.
