Joe Robach Supports Education through Library Funding

Senator Joe Robach has always supported education in any way possible. In 2013, Senator Robach was able to secure funding for libraries in the City of Rochester and the Towns of Brighton, Gates, Greece, Hamlin and Parma. The funding was used towards the purchase and upgrade of computers and new technology at the library facilities.

“Education really goes beyond just the classroom. Not only are libraries a safe haven for IMG_43762communities, they are also a place children can go for access to technology and things like computers and the internet. Libraries also offer fun and exciting programs for students that can help make literacy and learning more fun,” said Joe Robach.

As a sign of appreciation for his support and advocacy of education and area libraries, the Rochester Regional Library Council recently presented Joe Robach with a certificate at its annual legislative breakfast. “I’m truly humbled by this recognition from the Rochester Regional Library Council,” said Robach. “The fact of the matter is, I don’t support libraries for recognition, I support libraries because they improve our communities and our schools.”

In addition to securing funding for area libraries, Joe Robach has supported education recently through his dictionary distribution project at elementary schools, and has talked to local high school students about the importance of government and activism in the community. Joe Robach believes that by supporting education and our students, we can better our community.
