The Sussex County libraries are about to get a financial windfall.
The money is coming from the county’s budget surplus with the independent libraries in Laurel and Seaford getting grants of $60-thousand.
Nine other communities are getting smaller amounts.
Wendy Roberts, director of the Laurel Public Library, told the Salisbury Daily Times that she was tickled to death at the news.
She said the first priority would be to fix a leaky roof among other things.
