Linebaugh Public Library's new Technology Engagement Center (TEC) has received a $100,000 construction grant that's distributed through the Tennessee State Library and Archives Department. The 5,492 square foot facility is being constructed at 306 Minerva Drive, next to Hobgood Elementary School.
Linebaugh Library Director Rita Shacklett said, "41 percent of the people here in Rutherford County do not have internet, and Linebaugh's Technology Engagement Center will offer free WiFi service."
It will be the first public library in Tennessee with a one-hundred percent technology center that has 36 computers, technology meeting rooms, 3-D printers and more.
Secretary of State Tre Hargett will be at the construction site at 10:00 o'clock this coming Monday morning to present the grant.
