Jefferson City Public Library received a $6,856 grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Science Friday, presented by Secretary of State Tre Hargett. The award, to be used for updating computers and software, is the biggest grant awarded to date by the organization.

“We have a number of outdated computers that are still running Windows 7,” said Jefferson City Library (JCPL) Director David Phillips. “I plan to purchase 14 new desktops and seven new laptops, which will all have Windows 10. We also need new security and print software.”
