The Caldwell Public Library is already benefitting from the funds raised by the community at the November Mayors’ Legacy for Literacy Gala.
The library has used about a third of the proceeds from the recent fundraiser to purchase 10 new computers, according to Director Adele Puccio.
The custom-configured Dell Optiplex computers with 21.5” widescreen monitors will replace all the existing computers, including the six on the main level and the four in the children’s room. The computers have been configured with extra memory, Puccio said.
The old computers were about six to eight years old and replacement was beginning Wednesday.
The Mayors’ Legacy for Literacy , Caldwell Mayor Ann Dassing said at the borough’s reorganization meeting. Dassing co-hosted the event with former Caldwell Mayor Susan Gartland.
The computers were purchased with just over $12,000, Puccio said.
Money from the gala will also be used to fund the Summer Reading Club for children, the library director reported.
