Spencer Garvey, a young resident of Milton, Pennsylvania, is looking forward to visiting the children’s library at the new Milton Public Library at Rose Hill, where stakeholders and local officials broke ground last week.  By early next year, the historic mansion in the heart of Milton will be transformed into an 11,000 square-foot library and community center with dedicated space for educational and cultural programs.

The project is funded, in part, by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through a USDA Community Facilities loan and a Community Facilities grant. State grants and community contributions were also instrumental in the project.
