Rochester Public Library named an Erie Canalway Heritage Affiliate Site

Rochester Public Library is one of 25 sites to be named to the Erie Canalway Heritage Partners Program. This program seeks to expand collaboration and enhance visitors’ experiences as they explore sites along the Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor. Sites were selected based on their facilities, hours of operation and significance as a part of the canal’s history and/or future. The program is being funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Beth Sciumeca, Executive Director of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor said this about the project, “Each one of our partners shares a different aspect of the canal’s role in shaping New York and the nation…By working together, each place can provide a bridge to the next, offering a more complete picture for residents and visitors.”
