Library Patron
Nantahala Regional Library Logo

Total Grant Funding: $46,038
Grant Cycles: 2020 CHIP, 2021 NIMble
Priority Area: Education

To expand both network and computer access to your constituents, to purchase network devices to expand your libraries' outdoor WiFi range to allow for better connection to our faster internet, and to purchase laptops for The Learning Center Charter School to use for remote learning and for your libraries to use via curbside (2020) and to provide library users with a comprehensive collection of online materials and resources to aid their pursuit of information, research, education, recreation, and the development of creative capacities in their leisure time (2021).

Impact: "We installed WiFi devices to increase our range of outdoor use at our library branches. We also purchased laptops for our libraries and our partner, The Learning Center Charter School, to use with students. We purchased all devices and immediately expanded the WIFI at our locations, as well as The Learning Center. There was an immediate response to this with an increase of cars parked in our lots using the newly expanded wifi not to mention that the range actually covers neighboring parking lots."

Reach of Macon van

Total Grant Funding: $100,300
Grant Cycles: 2019, 2020 CHIP, 31 Days of Giving
Priority Areas: Education, Economic Security

To purchase a disability equipped passenger van (2019); and to ensure on-site academic tutors are available to serve as liaisons between parents and Macon County Schools/teachers and can work with families to provide support on virtual learning days as a result of COVID-19 safety measure (2020). Photo provided by grantee.

Impact: "Without the van, clients would not have received transport due to an inability to ensure social distancing and the cleanliness of employees’ vehicles. Having a passenger van allowed for Covid-friendly client transports, permitted REACH to obtain vital resources for their shelter and community clients, and decreased barriers clients face in obtaining critical resources."
