The Andrews-Dallas Township Public Library received a grant of American Rescue funds for its project “Connect to Your Library and Beyond.” This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library.
The project includes a router, camera system and projector which will enhance the library’s abilities to offer virtual programs and stream onsite programs to be viewed remotely. Funds will also be used toward additional digital materials, ebooks and eaudiobooks to expand the library’s collection of materials available through the eIndiana OverDrive consortium.
A solar charging station will be added to the library’s outdoor area, and a new copier will be added for easy printing from patron’s laptops and cell phones. Patrons of the library will also be able to request subscriptions to CuriosityStream, a service with access to thousands of high interest nature, science, technology and history videos.
Also, funds will be available for non-resident library cards for patrons outside of Dallas Township who wish to use the Andrews Library. For more information about the grant, new services of the library or how to register for a non-resident library card, call the library at 786-3574, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the library at 30 E. Madison St., Andrews.
The library is open Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
