Addison Township Library Project Selected to be Brought Before Congress

The Addison Twp. Library is thrilled to announce that our Application for the Community Project Funding was selected as one of the 10 projects  by U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin.  We requested $500,000 to help fund the construction of the new Addison Twp. Library. The project successfully met the following criteria:

  1. The applicant is a state or local government or a public institution of higher education.
  2. The project is located in Congressional District MI-08.
  3. The proposal demonstrates that the Community Project has robust community support.
  4. The proposal demonstrates that the Community Project will have a significant impact on our community.
  5. The proposal demonstrates that the Community Project would be a good use of taxpayer dollars.

It must be stated that only ten projects can be selected for consideration and that not all ten will be successfully funded. 

In addition to submitting the application, nearly 100 expressions of support were submitted by patrons as well as local supervisors, administrators, lawmakers, and supporters. We sincerely appreciate the collaborative community action that has spurred us on to achieving our goal of building the first taxpayer dedicated library in Addison Twp., Mi.
