    West Liberty, Iowa–The West Liberty Public Library received a $1,200 Impact Grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine’s West Liberty Fund. The money will go towards gaming computers and electronics, opening up new avenues for local youth once the West Liberty Public Library reopens to the public.

    “We were excited to get the application and we’re glad that the library was one of the recipients,” said Geri Owen, a West Liberty Fund committee member.

    With this grant, the library will dedicate a space downstairs in the children’s area for the computers as part of a larger redesign that is currently in progress for the youth section. The West Liberty Public Library remains closed to the public, though it now provides Library Pick-up and other services. During this closure, library staff have updated many areas of the library.

    “We are thrilled to be given this grant to help provide new technological experiences for our younger patrons. This money will go towards creating a more engaging atmosphere at the library,” said Library Director Allie Paarsmith.
    The West Liberty Public Library strives to stay at the forefront of technology, and this grant will allow it to continue its pursuit of cutting edge programs and equipment.
