The Lennox Community Library received a grant in the amount of $1,000 from the Lennox Area Community Foundation.
The funds will be used toward the purchase of a Promethean Board which is a large scale, interactive device that can be used for education and entertainment.
“We intend on using our Promethean Board like a large scale mobile SmartBoard. There’s live screen sharing and lesson recording, and so much more. It has great connectivity, simplicity, and security. We imagine an opportunity to live stream things like local legislation days, major historical events, and national and worldwide events in real time,” stated Audrea Buller, Director of the Lennox Community Library. “We are looking at a Promethean board that is on a stand so that we can use it for advertising during events/open houses. And to more be more flexible with where we can show things. For example use it in the early childhood area for story time,” Buller continued.
