Addison Township Public Library to Receive $500,000 Federal Grant to Build New Library

March 11, 2022


U.S. Senate Passes Historic FY 2022 Omnibus Spending Bill

Last night the United States Senate voted 68 – 31 to approve the FY 2022 Omnibus Spending Bill. President Biden is expected to sign it into law in the coming days.

Included in that Bill is a request for $500,000.00 to go toward the construction of Addison Township’s first Library building.

It’s been an incredible honor to have had our project chosen for this funding. Not all of the “Community Funded Projects” brought before the Senate received all of the funding which was requested. Ours did. According to Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin — “our project made the final cut based on the strength of our application and the broad support shown by the community.” We expect to receive the funds within 6-months.

Work will begin on the new library as soon as possible.
