Madison Public Library Foundation grants totaling more than $125,000 allowed Madison Public Library to complete a variety of technology upgrades at Sequoya, Goodman, and Central libraries throughout last year. The projects include new screens, sound equipment, cabling, connectivity, and more.

Central Library received new projectors to replace old, defective equipment and a screen to reflect light more evenly. The upgrades are part of a larger project, called Amplifying Community Voices, to provide for hybrid meetings in the Community Room.

Goodman South’s Community Room received replacements for a broken projector and screen as well as AV display panels for accessible public use.

Sequoya secured an upgraded screen, projector, and audio equipment. A touch panel and two cameras were also installed to allow for hybrid meetings, allowing Sequoya to hold hybrid programming such as a Spanish book club and a yoga class.

The foundation is proud to support technology upgrades that can increase the accessibility of library services and allow for hybrid programming.
