Did You Know?
Computer lab volunteers are needed at the library.
Do you know computer basics? Have you a free afternoon most weeks? If so, please consider volunteering to staff the Gates Computer Lab at Pack Memorial Library.
The lab contains 10 computers that are used primarily for public Internet access. Typically, volunteers help lab users get started, answer simple questions, and collect money for copies. In return, they can surf the 'net on the library's high speed Internet connection and benefit from discounted copies for their own work.
For more information, call Laura Gaskin in the Reference Department, 250-4733.
