COLUMBUS- State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced today that the state has released capital funds for Kent State University. $31,300 will finance electrical engineering services to upgrade the Library fire alarm system.


“Upgrading the Library’s outdated fire alarm system is an important development,” Rep Clyde said. “This improvement will ensure that Kent State’s most visited facility is safer to the public and that its valuable collections remain preserved.”


 Kent State’s Library will receive these state funds to upgrade the fire alarm system in areas of the building that have not been renovated since the building was originally constructed in 1970. These portions of the building still utilize original, out-of-date equipment. The Library Building is the largest building in the Kent State system and contains more than 1.8 million volumes and 2,000 seats for study.


 Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and Central and Southern Portage County.
