On September 30, Senator Cam Ward visited each library in Bibb County and presented each with a grant.

The Brent-Centreville Public Library, West Blocton Library and Woodstock Community Library each received grants when more became available to Senator Ward. At each library, Senator Ward spoke with the library staff and mayors from each city about the plans for those libraries.

“Public libraries are one of the important parts of a good community. I am glad to join

local leaders in supporting our local libraries,” said Senator Ward after his visits.
