CARROLLTON, Mo. — The Carrollton Public Library has been awarded a grant for more than $20,000 which will expand its technology offerings to its patrons.

According to Carrollton Library Project Coordinator Stephanie Carter, the Library Services Technology Act (LST) Tech Ladder Grant was awarded to the Carrollton Public Library early in June.

The grant, totaling $20,477.00, will provide a number of upgrades to the library.

Five Chrome Box computers and nine Windows desktop machines are planned to be purchased with part of the money. In addition, a new microphone reader, WiFi Hotspots and staff and patron training to acclimate with the new technology will be offered.

The project, still in the early stages, will be completed by Fall 2018. Currently, library officials are exploring options for purchasing the planned items.

The Carrollton Public Library was one of more than 25 libraries across the state awarded a grant from the Missouri State Library.

“It [the grant] is very competitive,” Carter said. “We are proud to be able to bring these upgrades and better serve our community and patrons.”
