Library Computer Technician Lee Ann Santee filed all the necessary paperwork to secure a grant that allowed the BLRL to buy these new computers. Lee Ann stated, "It's very important for us to continually maintain and update the technology that serves our community."
This LSTA Technology Mini-Grant allowed the Library to purchase 5 laptops and 4 desktop computers including monitors. These funds totaled $8,263.00 with the Library contributing an additional 25% of the overall cost.
