Martin Marietta donates new computers to library
Martin Marietta has donated new computers to the Jamestown Community Library to replace the original computers they donated when the library opened in 2002.
The new computers will all be hooked up to the Internet, thanks to Will Helmy from Home Telecom.
Martin Marietta and the Hell Hole Swamp Festival also give a monetary donation to help the all-volunteer library pay its bills. The library is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Patrons can also use the library when the Jamestown Town Hall is open to the public. A big thanks to all of the library volunteers and supporters.
