gateway to life-long learning opportunities"
for 2006! The Selkirk & District Community
Learning Centre is launching a computer lending library!
sponsored Computer Lending Program is designed to encourage
the use of computers by making them accessible to those who
are unable to otherwise acquire them; thereby increasing their
quality of life, literacy, fluency and enhancing the specialty
skills that have become a requirement for more employment
opportunities - even in entry-level positions.
Computer Lending Library operates as a membership based organization
and computers are loaned to members for up to two years. If
you are interested in the Computer Lending Library visit our
web site for more information, or contact Janice at the Selkirk
