Tennessee Rep. Bill Sanderson and Secretary of State Tre Hargett will be at the Obion County Public Library at 1221 East Reelfoot Ave. in Union City Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. to present an $11,000 check to be used for new computer equipment, new training, educational opportunities, Internet access and other enhancements, according to librarian Michele Barnes.
“The grant will help people access information on employment opportunities, job training, small business development and education here in Obion County,” Sanderson said. “This will help level the playing field in the job market and eliminate the need for some people to drive to big cities to get this rapid Internet access.”
The public is invited to attend the event.
