Region 8 library receives grant

PIGGOTT, AR (KAIT) - One Region 8 community library is taking advantage of thousands of dollars awarded by the government.

Due to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, funding has been set aside for construction and renovation of public libraries.

The Piggott Library recently received a grant of $5,000 to help get a microfilm reader and a color copier.

Librarian Gay Johnson says the library will have to match the grant. The overall cost is $17,000. Fund raisers will be held to come up with the remainder.
