Part of the Timberland Regional Librarys (TRL) mission is to provide access to new forms of information, such as Internet resources and CD-ROMs, and to provide it equitably to all residents of the TRL service area, especially the underserved and disadvantaged residents, through the TRL libraries. This means TRL needs to constantly upgrade technology, provide access to new electronic sources of information, and reach out to underserved groups. The Libraries Online! grant enhanced TRLs efforts to improve access to information by enabling them to increase public services in several county branches in SW Washington. In eight branch libraries, either stand-alone or networked PCs were installed so patrons had access to educational and productive software applications, electronic library resources and the Internet.
The following Washington State communities benefited from the Timberland Regional Librarys Libraries Online! Program: Aberdeen, Centralia, Raymond, Shelton, Olympia, Hoquiam, Ocean Park, Hoodsport and Packwood.
