ALBION – The four public libraries and two museums in Orleans County will share $40,000 in state funding to boost their educational programming.

State Sen. Robert Ortt this morning met with the museum and library leaders at Hoag Library in Albion and presented them with ceremonial checks.

The four public libraries – Hoag in Albion, Community Free Library in Holley, Yates Community Library in Lyndonville and Lee-Whedon Memorial Library in Medina – will each receive $5,000.

The Cobblestone Museum and Medina Railroad Museum will each get $10,000.

This funding will go toward the creation of educational programs within the various facilities, as well as the updating of technological resources, Ortt said.

“I am proud that I was able to secure this funding for some of the wonderful educational facilities we have located across Orleans County,” said Sen. Ortt. “These institutions play such an important role in preserving the history of Orleans County, and in educating our county’s future generations and I am thankful that we have such great leadership at each one of these entities to foster their continued successes.”
