The Arizona State Library has awarded a grant in the amount of $13,600 to Sedona Public Library in the Village (SPL-V). Funds from this grant were used to purchase a self-service Library Document Station (LDS), a laser printer, and software for wireless printing.
The volunteers and I listened to requests from our community and pursued funding to purchase this technology. I am very happy that SPL-V was named as a grant recipient. Thanks to funding from this grant, we can now offer new services.
With the self-service Library Document Station, you can fax, scan, and print documents. Because the LDS is self-service, your documents remain private. The technology is convenient, affordable, and easy to use.
Funds from the grant were also used to purchase software to offer mobile printing. With our new mobile printing service, you can use your personal computer or mobile device from anywhere to print to the printer at the Village library. Simply submit a document for printing and come to the Village library within two hours to pick up your print job. To access this service remotely, you will need an email address. Visit the SPL-V webpage to access directions for mobile printing at the Village library or call the Village library for more information.
SPL-V’s grant was made possible from federal funds received by the Arizona State Library under the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), which is administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. More than $800,000 was awarded on a competitive basis to libraries in Arizona, including SPL-V. The State Library also uses the federal funds to support statewide services, including family literacy and reading programs, electronic databases, digital government initiatives, and continuing education classes.
