Thank You to Kevin Hardwick

During its Breakfast with Santa event on Dec. 19, Brighton Place held a presentation to celebrate the $5,000 allocated in the 2016 Erie County budget for Brighton Place that Legislator Kevin Hardwick secured. Pictured from left to right, Library Manager Donna White, Santa Claus, Everett Herbeck, Legislator Kevin Hardwick and Brighton Place Board of Directors President Michael Rizzo.

The funding will be used to upgrade the technology at Brighton Place, which is a Community Resource Center. The Brighton Library was removed from the Erie County and Buffalo Library System in 2006 due to budget cuts, but thanks to the Town of Tonawanda, volunteers, the board of directors and donors, the building has remained opened as a fully operating community library.

"I was pleased to secure this funding for Brighton Place in next year’s budget. The volunteers and board do so much of the fund raising on their own and the community has proven this is a resource they want to have, and I think it is important for the county to invest in this much-needed center," said Legislator Hardwick.
