GARDINER, Maine (AP) - The Gardiner Public Library has received more than $100,000 in grant money to renovate its archive room and better protect the records kept there.

The library received $112,000 in grants from four foundations and one private donor over the last several months to fund its plan to renovate the lower floor with a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, a tiled floor and LED lighting.

Director Anne Davis says the library will raise the remaining $35,000 needed for the estimated $145,000 renovation from the community. She tells the Morning Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1DjfKyX ) she’s confident the library will be able to reach its goal and complete the renovations by the end of December or early January.

Some of the collection, which includes documents and photographs, date to before the Revolutionary War.
