“All Aboard” for the Internet

KLYQ File Photo
The North Valley Public Library in Stevensville is gearing up for the internet with the help from the US Department of Commerce and the Montana State Library.
The library will add 8 new computer work stations as part of the “Broadband Technology Opportunities Program.” The library will be able to increase their access to the internet, and add 2 new children’s computer work stations, along with an ADA computer for disabled patrons. The library will also be able to purchase furniture and a printer.
The library staff has future plans for 6 wireless laptop computers and public training classes.
Seth Pollman, the North Valley Public Library tech training specialist, said an Open House August 5th from 6-8pm will show off the new equipment at the library at 208 Main in Stevensville.
He said in a news release that last year Montana public libraries saw nearly one million uses of their public computers. Of those who do not have home internet access, about 67 percent rely totally on their local libraries for internet.
Money also was donated by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is being distributed to 42 Montana libraries.
The Darby Public Library is also a recipient of funding from the grants.
