Grant awarded

In an ongoing effort to provide our patrons of the Dundee Public Library with the latest resources available, Library Superintendent Julie Feagle was able to successfully secure a grant through the Florida Department of State, Division of Library and Information Services. The grant will enable the facility to add eight Apple I-pads , pre-loaded with educational apps (applications) wherein they will be able to use as a learning resource. This was a joint application in conjunction with the Auburndale Library through the Polk County Library Cooperative. In total, sixteen I-pads were secured by the two county libraries, with each gaining eight devices apiece.

The Dundee Public Library seeks to be an integral part of the local community beyond being just being a resource where its patrons can simply avail themselves of the latest books in print. It should be noted the facility also has a notary , also provides facsimile, laminating and photocopying services. There are also fifteen public computers , of which seven are for direct use for the younger patrons (children) of the library , with an array kid-friendly games available on the computers in question. Eight public computers are also available for use by patrons to aid them for whatever practical aid might be needed. With a staff of three employees and a number of volunteers, the Dundee Public Library provides the type of service Julie Feagle best serves the patrons of the facility she presides over.
