Library upgrades computer monitors

May 15th, 2012 in News

Missouri River Regional Library (MRRL) recently received a grant that was used to purchase 36 new 19-inch LED, environmentally friendly, mercury-free EnergyStar computer monitors.

The process to received the grant was a long one, said Nikki Bateman, computer center supervisor/training coordinator for MRRL.

In January, she applied for the grant. Then in April, she began ordering and setting up the monitors. A survey was also developed for patrons to help gauge their reactions.

"We did an online survey when patrons logged onto the computers with the new monitors," Bateman said, noting that patrons said the monitors were "a wonderful improvement," "simply great" and "fantastic."
