Library upgrades its computers

Magness Library has updated its public computer system with the money given to it by city of McMinnville from its 2013-14 fiscal year budget.“When the city gave us $17,000, I applied for a technological grant from the state of Tennessee and asked for the most I could get,” said library director Brad Walker. “I received a $4,050 matching grant from the state. It’s a 50-50 grant.”Combing the funds provided by the city with the grant and buying from a state contract, Walker says he was able to update all of the library’s public computers.“One of the biggest things we could do that would make the biggest impact at one time is upgrade our computers that are open to the public,” said Walker.
