KINGWOOD — The Kingwood Public Library has received a grant to install security cameras.

The $3,535 grant was one of 31 grants announced last week by the West Virginia Library Commission, totaling $110,093. The Kingwood Library was the only one in Preston and Monongalia Counties to receive a grant.

Librarian Joel Beane said the grant, “has to do with putting cameras in the library to see what’s going on.” Work on the project is already under way.

Of the grants awarded statewide, 17 were for facility maintenance and 14 for technology enhancements.
