The Morrisville Free Library has been rewarded a grant of over $52,500.

The Keystone Grant money will be used for repairs, specifically to replace the roof of the building.

Located in Morrisville, the library is 108 years old. It is among a few others in the entire state that recently received grants.

108 years old?! It can definitely use some sprucing up!

Pennsylvania lawmakers announced the reward this past Thursday, as they stress the importance of reading, community, and a strong library system for children.

State Senator Steve Santarsiero said, "For decades, Morrisville Free Library has taught our children the joy of reading, provided students with the tools necessary to learn, and has hosted countless events for children, seniors, businesses, and community groups." via patch.com.

Reading is such an important part of our lives starting at a young age; it's great that there's going to be improvements made to this local library.

Well deserved! Can't wait to see how it turns out!
