The City of Lyndon city council approved a $500,000 grant Aug. 28 supporting the Northeast Regional Library. The funds will be used to purchase books and other materials for the library, supplementing construction funding from Metro Government and the state. The grant was approved unanimously by city council.
“We’re really proud to support the Northeast Regional Library,” Mayor Brent Hagan said. “It’ll provide a full-service library to the residents of Northeast Jefferson County, with space for education, workforce development, cultural activities, and community gatherings."
