Danbury Public Library receives $100k for much-needed upgrades

December 18, 2019

The Danbury Public Library has just been approved to receive a $100,000 grant from the state during today's Bond Commission meeting.

I’m happy to share some exciting news!

During my campaign in 2018, I promised that I would work tirelessly to bring resources back to the 2nd District. As a result of working with my colleagues and Governor Lamont’s Office, Danbury Public Library has just been approved to receive a $100,000 grant from the state during today's Bond Commission meeting. These new funds will allow the library to undertake its first significant renovation in decades.

Libraries have served as vital centers for towns, neighborhoods and communities across Connecticut. They provide meeting spaces for local organizations, supplemental resources for our school-aged children and activities for our seniors. This new funding will allow us to better serve our communities and educate the next generation.

Thank you to my colleagues who supported these efforts and to Governor Lamont for understanding the importance of sending resources back to our towns, communities and neighborhoods.
