BACKGROUND INFO

This grant is made available through the California Public Library Broadband project, through the State Library.  While the department was working on the Technology for the New Library Project, this funding opportunity came to the attention of staff. This would allow for all three library branches to receive funding to update the outdated connections in the facilities including networking equipment, equipment installation, and configuration. The grant is in the amount of $30,000 for the Red Bluff Branch and $15,000 for each of the branches in Corning and Los Molinos.

 

This grant was applied for on 1/31/2017.  The library has received notification the State Library approved the grant application and awarded the grant in the amount of $60,000.  Staff is asking the board to ratify the submission of the application and approve the Librarian to accept the grant award.
