March 21, 1996|By Alisa Samuels | Alisa Samuels,SUN STAFF

Friends of the Howard County Library has awarded $7,500 to the county library system to help it purchase computers for its users.

A check was given to the library system March 8 during the Friends of the Howard County Library's annual meeting. The nonprofit citizens' organization was formed in 1971 to help the library system provide better services and resources .

The $7,500 donation will help buy four or five computers for the libraries, said Norma Hill, the assistant library director, who accepted the check.

"What we're doing is moving to a client service environment," Mrs. Hill said. The donation is a big step in the library system's plans to obtain 50 to 60 computers.

Friends of the Howard County Library has given the library system more than $12,000 in the past three years.
