Humanities Relief Grant                                                                            Contact 919 735-1824 x5117

Wayne County Public Library has received a $20,000 NC CARES: Humanities Relief Grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council. This emergency grant funding was provided to North Carolina cultural organizations experiencing hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

 

This important funding will support humanities staff and implement an innovative new technology, Pass It Down. The virtual storytelling program will allow Wayne County Public Library to create digital exhibits on the rich histories of Wayne County for its patrons to interact with. Pass It Down is used in libraries and museums around the world to collect, share, and inform. The program will be easily accessible in the Goldsboro Library and the Steele Memorial branch in Mount Olive via a large, interactive touchscreen available for patron use. Pass It Down will also be integrated on the library’s website, wcpl.org, allowing desktop, mobile, and tablet users to use the program for free from anywhere.
