SOUTH AMBOY — On Dec. 10, the Dowdell Library Foundation presented a $5,000 grant to the Sadie Pope Dowdell Public Library of South Amboy. The funds will be used to upgrade 13 computers and purchase 10 new computers. Support to acquire additional software was provided by TechSoup.org and Microsoft Corporation.

“Providing current technology is critical for the library to serve as a resource for South Amboy students as well as many others in our community,” noted Mimi Pichey, President of the Dowdell Library Foundation. “We were able to make this grant thanks to the many people who contributed generously to our ‘Dunk a Politician’ booth at the South Amboy Street Fair and our ‘Dining to Donate’ events at local restaurants.”
