TROY (WWJ)  — Media Genesis designed and developed a new website to aid the Friends of the Troy Public Library in their mission to promote and support the Troy Public Library.

Media Genesis created the site, found at http://www.friendstpl.org, with a WordPress content management system to empower the Friends to update their own content and accept donations, membership dues, and volunteer and membership applications through the site.
