LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - The Community College System of New Hampshire has purchased two former Lebanon College buildings on a pedestrian mall in downtown Lebanon.

The $1.6 million purchase was made with a 40-year loan from the U.S Department of Agriculture Rural Development program.

River Valley Community College President Alicia Harvey-Smith says the Claremont-based school will be able to establish a new accredited academic center in Lebanon as a result of the funding.

She says the school, which currently serves 1,000 students at its Claremont and Keene campuses, expects to offer courses in business, liberal arts and other subjects.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1PxDnLb ) U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster described River Valley’s expansion to Lebanon as the “most concrete result” she’s had from running for Congress.
