Dahlonega Rotary Grant

LC Rotary LaptopsThanks to the Noon Dahlonega Rotary Club and the Dahlonega Sunrise Rotary Club, the Lumpkin County Library is pleased to announce some new technological additions that are now up and running at the library. The Noon and Sunrise Rotary clubs, along with a matching grant from the Georgia Rotary District 6910, recently donated $ 6,000.00 to the Lumpkin County Library for technology enhancements. With this grant, the library purchased seven new laptop computers, a portable large sheet scanner, and an upgraded wireless WiFi router for the library. The addition of the new laptops is a welcome addition for patrons that use the library for internet access. The new wireless WiFi router has provided an enhanced wireless signal and allows patrons to access the wireless network even when the library is not open. Patrons can now enjoy the library reading garden, sit outside on the bench as they work on their laptops, or even stay in their cars and use their computers. The portable large sheet scanner will be used for digitization of the library’s genealogy and Georgia History resources that currently only exist in hard copy format. Chestatee Regional Library System would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for all the organization, research, and generosity that helped to make this grant a possibility. It is through support like this from the Dahlonega Rotary Clubs which enables the library to fulfill its vital role in our community.
