  Computer Lending Library 

New for 2006!  The Selkirk & District Community Learning Centre is launching a computer lending library!

Mission Statement

The SDCLC 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.

The 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 Learning Centre:

Phone: (204) 482-2111

A Thought ....

"No one can become really educated without having pursued some study in which he took no interest.  For it is part of education to interest ourselves in subjects for which we have no aptitude."
