County Library receives four new computers through grant dollars
Librarian Alison Kattlemann applied for a Library Service and Technology Act grant through the South Dakota State Library. She was notified in mid-summer that the library had received a $3,280 grant.
With those grant dollars she was able to purchase four Dell, Dimension 1100, flat screen computers. The computers arrived in mid-September.
All four computers have been installed and are up and running. Kattleman noted since the computers were put in about three weeks ago, the number of computer patrons has risen by 50 percent.
Kattlemann noted they could use more computers as there is a need for them, especially after school. But she said there is no space to put additional computers at this time. Currently, during high traffic periods, users are limited to the time they can spend on the computer.
The new computers replace three older public access computers. These computers will be saved and used in the proposed new library.
