NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
MOFFAT LIBRARY WINS NEW YORK LIBRARY ASSOCIATION'S 2018 PUBLIC LIBRARY BUILDING AWARD FOR RESTORATION & RENOVATION
The Moffat Library of Washingtonville is honored to be the recipient of a 2018 New York Library Association Public Library Section Building Award for Renovation & Restoration, which will be awarded at the Association’s Annual Meeting on Friday, November 9th in Rochester, New York.

The Library is one of two recipients of this biennial award, which alternately focuses on new construction one year and then renovation & restoration the next. Last month, the Library was also awarded a New York State construction grant for $135,000 to renovate and restore the historic carriage house on the library property that will provide additional storage & collection space.

Congratulations to you, our community! You made this possible!

REMINDER TO NEW AND RETURNING STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS
For the safety of all, please note: “All children ten (10) years and under using the Moffat Library must be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times.

Parents or guardians who wish to allow their child (between the ages of eleven and seventeen) use of the Moffat Library unaccompanied must apply in person for a Moffat Library card for their child.”

MOFFAT LIBRARY RECEIVES STATE FUNDS TO RESTORE HISTORIC CARRIAGE HOUSE
The Moffat Library of Washingtonville received calls from both the offices of Senator William J. Larkin and Assemblyman James Skoufis last week, notifying us that we were to receive $135,000.00 in 2017-18 NYS DLD Library Construction Program grant funds towards the renovation of the library’s historic carriage house building.

Once renovated, the restored carriage house will provide additional and much-needed space for the Library’s local history and other special collections. In 2017 an appropriation of $24 million in capital funds for public library construction was included in the state budget. This week’s announcement of projects to receive funding occurred a year after the library’s submission of a successful application.

“We are thrilled to be able to have an additional space to assist in providing even more services to the community,” said Library Director Carol McCrossen. “Moreover, the fact that we are able to rehabilitate an existing historic structure to meet those needs makes this even more exciting for us. On behalf of the Moffat Library, we express our sincerest thanks to our NYS Legislators for their continued support of libraries and the communities that they serve.” Final approval for the project is expected soon; and construction should be getting underway in the months following.
