Sen. Needleman, Gov. Lamont Encouraged as Essex Library Receives Support for ADA Improvements, Window Replacement

Today, State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Essex) was encouraged by the State Bond Commission’s release of funding supporting improvements to Essex Library. Sen. Needleman also serves as First Selectman of Essex. During its March 31 meeting, the Bond Commission voted to approve $73,293 that will support the library improving Americans with Disabilities Act compliance and support window replacement.

“Our libraries are bastions of knowledge and education, and I’m so glad Governor Lamont and the State Bond Commission are lending their support,” said Sen. Needleman. “Ensuring all residents can access the library is vital to aid every resident, and window replacements will help the library improve efficiency and reduce energy costs.”

“Many Essex residents utilize the town’s library for a large number of educational and civic reasons, and by partnering with them on this project to upgrade the facility we can ensure that the library can continue functioning for many years to come,” Governor Ned Lamont said.

As part of a grant-in-aid to Connecticut libraries for construction, renovations, expansions, energy conservation and handicapped accessibility, Essex Library will receive $73,293 supporting ADA improvements and window replacement, as approved by the Bond Commission on March
