Jen Wicker, left, and Audrey Henry, middle, both with Friends of the Newberry County Library System, presented Library Director Sam Ziady, right, with a check to pay for 16 new computers in the library’s main computer lab. Wicker is vice president of the group and Henry is president of the group. ‘Patrons will enjoy the larger monitors and additional memory which should increase speed. They’re also more energy efficient,’ Ziady said. ‘We appreciate the donors and friends that support the Newberry Library system.’ The donors are honored on brass plaques displayed in the library’s lobby. Also shown is Harlie O’Connell, library staff, assisting Wicker in using one of the new computers.
