The Yeadon Public Library has received a $61,770 grant from the state, according to a news release by State Rep. Margo Davidson, D-164. The grant, which will be used to install efficient windows, lighting, and HVAC systems and allow the restrooms to be made ADA compliant, was part of $6.8 million in Keystone Grants to improve physical facilities at 27 libraries throughout the state.
“I am thrilled that the Yeadon Public Library has received these necessary funds to make the library so much more comfortable for the citizens of Yeadon,” Davidson said in the release, “The library is a community hub for people of all ages and walks of life. It’s where toddlers get their first books and kids come to study when school isn’t in session. It’s where people from the town connect, take classes, as well as get critical information they need for school or life. I thank the Pennsylvania Department of Education for the award of this grant and its recognition of the important role that the library plays in the life of the people of Yeadon.”
Approximately 85 percent of an upcoming sewer project will be funded through state grants, as announced September 18 by State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware. In all, more than $1.2 million in grants were been awarded for various projects throughout the 191st Legislative District, which covers portions of Delaware and Philadelphia counties.
The Yeadon portion of the grants consists of $424,641 for the replacement of sewer mains along West Providence Road and Yeadon Avenue. The total cost of the project is $499,578, according to a news release by Rep. McClinton.
The grants – approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority – also include $250,000 for a dock expansion at Bartram’s Garden public park, $200,000 to help renovate the McCreesh Recreation Center, and $358,011 for sewer line rehabilitation in Darby.
“Aging infrastructure can lead to major consequences, so it’s crucial to address these issues as quickly as possible,” McClinton said. “I am proud to support these efforts in any way that I can.”
