Mayors Sign Proclamations

The Pulaski County Library District is so fortunate!  The mayors in all three of our library communities recognize the importance of our Pulaski County Libraries.  This week, Mayors Smith (Crocker), Haun (Richland), and Hardman (Waynesville) each took the time to visit our libraries and sign a proclamation in honor of National Library Week.  Our mayors maintain schedules packed full with jobs, family responsibilities, as well as overseeing our fine cities.  We are grateful for the work our mayors do, and thankful for their support of our libraries!

Library Receives Technology Grant

Library Receives Technology Grant

At the Pulaski County Library District, we always strive to provide the best in technology for patrons in our community.  If you have visited the Richland Library in recent times, you know that we have struggled in this area.  Our computers were old and unreliable, and only one could be (mostly) counted on to print.  The Library also offers free WiFi access, which has not been terribly reliable either.

We are pleased to announce some changes at all three of our branches.  We are upgrading our wireless network so more patrons may seamlessly use the connection at the same time.  We are working to install a new projector at the Waynesville Library for a better Movie Night experience.  But the biggest change is that the Richland Library has gotten all new Patron Computers.  Available now are six new patron computers, all of which have the full MS Office suite, Adobe PDF reader, and internet connection.  The computers are also all able to print, and now have color printing capability (please see your librarian for this option).

How is this ambitious and exciting project made possible?  Well, this project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.  Which is to say, it was made possible by a grant received from the State Library.

We are so excited to be able to offer these products and services to our patrons, and grateful to the State Library of Missouri for making it possible.
