Monterey Library Gets Grant From State

Secretary of State Tre Hargett was in Monterey this week  to present a check to the local library. It was one of  more than 70 communities across Tennessee that received money to upgrade technology at rural libraries. The grants, which total $1.2 million statewide, are the product of a partnership between the Secretary of State’s Office, the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development. The money will be used to pay for computers and related expenses at the libraries.
