Discover how libraries of all sizes have successfully used Edge to advance key community outcomes.
Edge pushed Barton County Library to maximize its technological impact within its community by expanding its computer offerings, and by acquiring a Wi-Fi printer as well as a portable projector for multimedia presentations. Thanks to this leadership, Barton County Library partnered with community organizations such as the chamber of commerce and the City of Lamar, improving their knowledge about the programs and the availability of technology at the library.
After completing the Edge Assessment, Caruthersville realized that the library needed to step up its privacy protection for the digital devices available to patrons. Following this insight, the library installed privacy screens, tightened filters and added security software to the library’s computers. The library also increased its investment in providing digital training and learning resources.
Morgan County Library used Edge in order to help with technology planning, set priorities and apply for grants. In addition to this, the library works with the local government in order to improve digital literacy in the community, offering computer classes, developing programming, and assessing what the community thinks is most important.
