The Nashwauk Library was one of seven recipients of grants totally $25,000 awarded by the Nashwauk Area Community Fund (NACF) in 2021. The Nashwauk Library was awarded $5000 and was able to purchase eight computers to replace computers that were no longer functioning. “We purchased 8 new computers for the library. We have also been able to purchase storage units, and an iPad kiosk. The kids love to use the kiosk!” says Julie Stolp, Nashwauk Library Director. These computers allow the library to serve a wide variety of people from the community from young elementary students to high school students and the general public. Reliable computers fill a great need in the community.
