TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — A $20,000 gift from Toyota will help the Lee County Library expand its outreach to new readers.

The library will use the money to add about 150 e-books to its current collection of 400. The money also will pay for about 500 items targeting children and young adults, add larger computer screens for seminars and demonstrations, and expand the library’s book collection.

Library administrators say the materials are needed to reach a new group of users who are growing up using tablets, I-Pads and other electronic devices.
