Thank you to all our sponsors and those who came out and supported the Williamson County Libraries at our inaugural event. Because of your support, the Library Foundation surpassed our goal and will be purchasing 32 laptop computers and two portable storage carts for use at our libraries. You are helping us make a difference!
Our six public libraries in Bethesda, College Grove, Fairview, Franklin, Leiper’s Fork, and Nolensville, are community centerpieces, especially for our children in Williamson County. For example, since the opening of the Franklin library in 2003, there have been nearly 400,000 visits by children – for programs, resources, activities as well as for checkouts. The varied resources offered in our libraries, all free of charge, are for residents from all walks of life.
Today’s library patrons are looking for much more than books on shelves, and the Williamson County Public Library system strives to meet these needs. Donations to the Williamson County Library Foundation can go above and beyond the basics to ensure that a place of learning, discovery, and success will always be available to each and every Williamson County resident, at all of our library branches.

The proceeds from this year’s event, “Technology on the Go,” will be used for laptops to provide students with additional resources to enhance their education and learning. Many of the library users come from lesser-advantaged backgrounds, and these resources are not readily available to them at their homes.
These items will be purchased for the library system:

- 32 Laptop Computers – each with
- Microsoft Office
- Adobe programs package
- Access to the library’s catalog system
