WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — The Wichita Falls Public Library will soon be getting technology upgrades, thanks to a grant of over $285,000.

Announced at the Wichita Falls City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 7, the library was approached by the Priddy Foundation about its eligibility for the foundation’s Rural Library Project.

The grant will replace the public-use computers, monitors, laptops, backhaul servers and Wi-Fi gear with updated technology.

Plus, the children’s area will get a facelift with the addition of new TVs and S.T.E.M. equipment.

According to Assistant City Manager Blake Jurecek, the heightened technology that comes with this grant will give citizens a boost when using the library’s services.

“This can help us catch up, you know, and there’s a lot of things—there’s a lot of needs every year, but this is a great opportunity for us to upgrade a lot of our equipment, give our citizens a little bit more technology available, and just provide a better service,” Jurecek said.

The city manager said computers should arrive and be installed by the beginning of June 2024.

The rest of the equipment will arrive within the next six months.
