Congressman Murphy Visits
"I am pleased to have been able to secure funds necessary for renovations and updates
to the Andrew Carnegie Free Library," Congressman Tim Murphy said on February 9th. "I know the
importance that libraries play in shaping the minds and careers of future
generations. This money will help ensure that this historical library will
continue to serve citizens in the Chartiers Valley - young and old - for
years to come."
The $250,000 – which was set aside as a line item in the federal budget by the
House Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations Subcommittee –
will be used for technological and programmatic improvements.
