Representative Keisling presents a check from the Secretary of State's Office to the Pickett County Library to purchase new computers and other electronic equipment.
The funds are part of the Tennessee State Library and Archives grant program that promotes the use of technology in rural areas.
"Libraries in rural areas play an especially important role in connecting citizens with the resources and opportunities that are often times isolated to urban areas," stated Representative Keising. "These grants will go a long way toward providing vital access to computers and the internet, which is particularly helpful in some of the areas that were hit hardest during the recession."
