Library leaps ahead with technology

PM Rotary Club helps out the cause of early literacy

Reece Martis, 10 and Cherie Martis, 9 try out the new Early Literacy Station at Castlegar & District Public Library (top photo at left).

“The new computer has lots of features!” stated Cherie while using the pre-loaded programmed computer recently at the Library.

“I like the touch screen. The screen is wide, the letters on the keyboard are big and bold.” Reece Martis stated.

“I like the activities” responded his sister Cherie. “World of Goo” is the favourite site for both these library customers.

The literacy station and desk were purchased through a generous donation from the Castlegar Rotary Club.

The club is represented by President  of the local Rotary PM group – Dale Donaldson (in lower photo), who also had a chance for a hands-on introduction to the system.

 

Both stations are available at no charge during library open hours.
