Barton County Library needs your help to purchase new laptops! Our current laptops, used primarily by children, teens, and seniors citizens, are running on obsolete technology. They are over five years old, have failing hardware, and run extremely slowly. Our goal is to raise $11,726 within 60 days to purchase 15 laptops, Windows 10 Professional licenses, and Office 2016 software. Completing this project will allow us to continue to provide the latest technology-based services to our three small, rural libraries. Will you help our kids and senior citizens?

Barton County Library Awarded a Technology Mini Grant

Barton County Library has been awarded a Technology Mini Grant in the amount of $4,098. This grant will be used to replace two servers at our Lamar branch. One of these servers handles the local backups for our computer systems, making sure our systems can be restored easily in the event of a system failure. The second server is our domain controller which performs several important functions on the library‚Äôs network and allows our computers to communicate with each other across all three branches.  Replacing our servers helps to ensure a safe and reliable computer network for our patrons to use. We will also replace the black and white printers at our Golden City and Liberal branches. The new printers will be available for patron use, improving a service that is used on a regular basis. This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
