The 16 new printers replace aging unreliable printers across the Library District. All nine branch locations were issued the upgrades. The Library received $10,635.20 in grant funds, or 75% of the total cost of the printers. "By working to get these grants, we can do much more for the community, and that's what we care about; We try to make the most of our resources," says Lee Anne Santee, Computer Tech for the BLRL. Every year BLRL Staff secure multiple grants like this one for various projects. Our mission is connecting people to the transforming power of knowledge.
