Introduction

Welcome to the Discount for Technology page. 

Public libraries that are purchasing new equipment or are working on grant proposals will find helpful links to discount resources.  Public libraries that collect city and/or state taxes for operating expenses are eligible to use state contracts listed with the Dept. of Finance and Administration's Procurement page.  There are also other organizations that assist non-profit business in saving money on technology.
