Thanks to the efforts of Senator Linda Greenstein, a Plainsboro resident and Assemblyman Daniel Benson, also of the 14th legislative district, the township Public Library will receive a $350,000 to build a new youth activity area on the third floor of the library.
"We are very appreciative of Senator Greenstein for her early support, and Assemblyman Benson for recognizing the need and benefits of this initiative for the children of Plainsboro", said Mayor Peter Cantu.
This special legislative grant will be used to build a Youth Engagement Services (YES), or the YES project that will enrich the community’s children at all educational and developmental stages since approximately 65% of the library’s patrons are youth.
This new state funding is in addition to a $100,000 grant from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and a $50,000 grant from Princeton University.
