Rep. Cavaletto Announces $10,000 Grant for Centralia Regional Library District

State Representative John Cavaletto (R-Salem) announced today that the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Project Next Generation grants are being processed and paid right now. The grants are administered through the State Librarian who is the Secretary of State. Centralia Regional Library District is the recipient of a $10,000 grant.

“I am pleased to have one of the libraries in my district receive this grant,” commented Rep. Cavaletto. “We work with libraries on a regular basis through the Summer Reading Club and as locations for public information programs like the recent Property Tax Seminar at the Bryan-Bennett Library in Salem.”

The project grants are intended to bridge the technological divide of residents within communities. The grants allow public libraries to pair technology with tutoring to assist students, aged 10-18, in developing skills that they may find useful in school and later in life employment. The grants are made, based upon community need, and allow access to technology and computers that would typically not be available to the students that participate in this program.
