Funds released for new air conditioning at library

Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s administration has released $400,000 for construction of a new air-conditioning system at the Kihei Public Library, Sen. Roz Baker announced.

“Once construction on replacing the air conditioning is completed, families will have a better experience when they go to Kihei Public Library,” said Baker, who represents South and West Maui.

The new system also will be up-to-date with energy efficiency features, she said.

“We will see less energy used and more money saved,” Baker said, adding that the project also will help create jobs.

There was no immediate information on when the project would begin.
