CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Coyle Free Library has received a $14,814 federal grant to serve Spanish-speaking patrons, according to a news release from library Director Todd Reynolds.

"We are really looking to enhance our service to the growing Hispanic community," Reynolds stated in the release.

The library applied for the Library Services and Technology Act grant in 2006, according to the release.

Some of the grant money will be used to hire an outreach coordinator to expand services to Spanish-speaking residents who otherwise would not use the library, according to the release. The coordinator will meet with Hispanic groups and community organizations and provide library cards, according to the release.

Grant money also will be used to acquire library materials in Spanish and to produce special Spanish-language materials, according to the release.
