January 2, 2017
(Greeley– February, 2016) – High Plains Library District (HPLD) is proud to be a community partner with 21 different non-profit organizations through our technology donation program. On January 25, 2016 HPLD distributed 113 desktop all-in-one computers, 11 laptops and 6 iPads to 21 Weld County nonprofit agencies whose services include but are not limited to: youth sports, education/tutoring/mentoring, independent living resources for the disabled, senior community center, employment solutions for the hard-to-employ, healthcare to those in need, animal welfare, science/math education, music and the arts.
HPLD uses a systematic computer replacement schedule to update computers throughout the entire library system. “Maintaining our technology is vital to the services we provide,” said Kelli Johnson, spokeswoman for High Plains. “In addition, HPLD is deeply committed to being a leader in environmental efficiency by using renewable energy, recycling and otherwise minimizing our impact on the environment.” added Johnson.
Through the technology donation program HPLD is able to repurpose nearly 100% of the equipment replaced. Donations of the gently used technology is done through an online application process. In order to qualify to receive a donation, your organization must be: a non-profit or school, within the HPLD service area (Weld County & Erie), able to purchase OS replacements, and able to pick up the donation.
