Cornelius Library wins technology grant
Cornelius Public Library has been given a $5,000 grant from the Reser Family Foundation to upgrade technology to provide services to the community.
One of the Cornelius Librarys goals is to provide access to a broad range of digital tools that help prepare future generations to use 21st-century technology, said Karen Hill, director of the Cornelius Library.
The library currently provides technology through e-books, Internet access, specialized office, information and learning software and staff to help navigate through it all.
This project will provide 11 upgraded desktop computers with Internet and Microsoft Office software, a high capacity printer, and new e-readers, tablets and laptops for checkout and outreach. This gift will be combined with an earlier award of $7,500 from the Walters Family Foundation and 10 refurbished laptops from Nike.
The library offers an open technology lab every Wednesday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and a basic computer class in Spanish from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
