Thanks to a Technology Mini-Grant from the Missouri State Library, Kirkwood Public Library was able to improve technology services by updating our servers. We replaced both our staff server and our public servers, which were reaching their Library Computersend of life. The public server is now a Dell PowerEdge T110 II, and the staff server a Dell T320 PowerEdge Tower Server. This update makes our network more reliable, speedier, and more efficient for both patrons and staff.

Need Your Tech Questions Answered?  If you need help with personal devices or are starting a new technology project, stop by the library during our Drop-In IT times on Sundays, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. to non, IMLS_Logo_2cThursdays, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Saturdays, 1:00-3:00 p.m., for one-on-one help.

This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
