The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library now hosts one of the fastest connectivity speeds of any library in the state.  The intenet remodeling was made possible via community contributions equal to the amount of $50,000.

Patrons at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library will walk in to a pleasant surprise the next time they go looking for reference materials or Internet access. The library has completed a remodeling project that was kick-started by a $25,000 donation from the Griffith Foundation and grew into a massive restructuring of the area, making for more productive workspace. To start off, Cameron Duff, library director, said the library now hosts more stations.

The upgrade is about more than quantity, though. ACT jumped in to provide state-of-the-art fiber optics.

Finally, Greg Madison with Electronic Classroom Furniture in Story pitched in workstations that were worth thousands more than the library was able to pay.

Duff said the generosity of the community doubled the value of the project to $50,000.
