USDA awards funds to 129 rural libraries in 30 states

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced in a press release on Friday that libraries in 129 rural communities from 30 states were awarded funding through the Rural Development’s Community Facilities Program, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  The $15 million of funding is supplemented by $10.2 million from other sources.  A combination of grants and loans will be used to build and enhance libraries in a variety of ways, including the renovation and expansion of buildings and the purchase of furniture and equipment.  A complete list of library recipients is also available.  (None of the libraries are in Maryland.)
