Community Cares awarded a grant to the Friends of the Library for 2016.
The funding will be used for security cameras. The security cameras are needed to upgrade current visual problems and to protect the patrons of the county. This will boost the safety that the library can provide to the public and create a safe environment for patrons. This plan of action is a continuous improvement plan of keeping our technology as up-to-date as possible for the library patrons. The outcome provided by the updated system will help Lebanon patrons, law enforcement, if a problem arises, and the library staff. This grant will help *35439 Laclede County citizens. * "United States Census Bureau," Population 2014 estimate, Viewed July 26, 2015
