Yeadon Public Library to Receive Upgrades from State Grant

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.”
