The Manning Public Library has been awarded a $10,000 Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant, which will be used to purchase new audio and video equipment. The grant is provided through federal funding to the State Library of Iowa by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in Washington, D.C. The decision to use the grant money to acquire professional equipment stems from an Edge Assessment and Edge Action Plan completed in 2018. This survey measured public access to technology at the library and identified an existing lack of availability and training for multimedia production equipment. Library staff is currently working to purchase the new materials and are optimistic the City of Manning and its residents will soon be able to produce its own professional quality content thanks to the LSTA grant.
