Best Buy Grant for A/V Club!

Many thanks to Best Buy for supporting young adult programming at Atascocita Branch Library! The grant, applied for through FOAL, will provide funds for audio visual equipment including microphones, cameras, computer, and more to bring our upcoming A/V club for teens to life! Best Buy of Atascocita is a great supporter of the library; not only do they volunteer their time during FOAL book sales, but they also volunteer in teaching tech courses to our patrons.
