TSLAC/CARES Grant Announcement

Irving Public Library has been awarded a Texas State Library and Archives Commission/CARES grant. The funds, provided by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, will be used to purchase Envisionware Tablet Stations to provide additional computer access at the South and West Irving libraries. Tablet stations will be a vital component in the library's future reopening phases, so stay tuned for more updates about when this service will become available. 

Currently, socially distanced computer access is available for the public at the South, Valley Ranch and West Irving library locations. Computer users may make their reservations through the library's online portal,

Once available, the grant funded self-service tablet stations will allow tablets to be checked out and taken to socially distanced, comfortable spaces. The library also expects to use the tablets as virtual hubs for attending future workforce trainings and webinars for new parents. 

This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and Texas State Library and Archives Commission (Grant #LS-246561-OLS-20) (2021).
