The Yuma Library Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation, has presented the Yuma County Library District with a check for $20,000 to purchase two Ultra-Violet Robots, which will be used to disinfect and sanitize the Main Library. The robots eliminate 99.9% of pathogens, including the coronavirus pathogens, influenza, common cold, and other Pathogens. The Yuma Library Foundation is seeking donors to help fund five more of the Ultra Violet Robots for the remaining library branches and will match up to $5,000 for each of the remaining robots.
