Shippensburg Public Library Awarded $500,000 Grant for Facility Repairs and Upgrades, Says Kauffman
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Cumberland/Franklin) today announced a $500,000 grant through the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund for needed upgrades and repairs to the Shippensburg Public Library.

“The Shippensburg Public Library is housed in an historic home with a limited footprint; therefore, it is currently running a capital campaign for an expansion project,” said Kauffman. “This grant funding will go a long way in helping with the addition to the library, as well as making upgrades to make it more accessible for those with disabilities, to better serve the needs of the community.”

Grants awarded under the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund may be used to pay up to 50 percent of the costs for projects such as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades; new roofing; replacement windows; energy-efficient upgrades to heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems; facility expansion; and new construction.

Shippensburg Public Library is one of 15 public libraries across the Commonwealth to take part of $3.7 million in grant funding. Shippensburg was awarded $500,000 – the highest amount available under the program – which must be matched dollar-for-dollar.

The Shippensburg Public Library is located at 73 West King St. in Shippensburg, in the historic George Stewart house.
