Grant From Newberry Township


The Bradford Public Library recently acquired 2 book sanitizing machines thanks to a $10,000 grant from Newberry Township Trustees. Funds for the sanitizing machines were made possible through the CARES Act Grant and were passed on to the Library in 2021.

The book sanitizing machines use UV Light and forced air to kill viruses and bacteria, including the COVID virus, as well as mold, mildew and mites. They can be used for many types of materials including books and magazines, movies, toys, and even technology such as tablets, laptops, phones, keyboards and other equipment. They are currently being used to ensure all incoming material is sanitized and ready for check out. We encourage patrons to come see these machines at work.

The Bradford Public Library would like to thank the Newberry Township Trustees for their support of our library and our efforts to keep our patrons and community healthy!
