Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today announced that grant money has been distributed to two major public library systems in Genesee County for infrastructure and cosmetic upgrades. The Byron-Bergen Public Library will receive $65,355 for parking lot upgrades and to replace emergency exit doors and energy- efficient windows. The Pavilion Public Library will receive $283,877 to build a 1790- square-foot children’s addition to its existing library.

            “I am pleased to announce this grant money is being distributed directly to libraries in my district,” Hawley said. “Libraries are an integral part of thousands of communities across the state. They offer free access to a wide-variety of resources for students, families and teachers and bring people together in a way other public entities cannot. I look forward to these library systems flourishing in the future and offer my continued support for library funding.”
