Moffat Library Receives State Funds to Restore
Historic Carriage House

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.
