Kelowna Computer News

Thursday, February 18, 2010

No more cramped quarters! The computers in Kelowna are now in their permanent location on the second floor. There is more good news though … more computers are on their way. 22 computers will be added to the classroom located on the second floor by Monday after the Reading Break.  Students are welcome to use those computers when the room is not being used for classes. The Learning Centre will also be up and running by Monday, in its new location on the second floor. There you will find five computers available for student use when the Centre is closed. Ten more  computers for group and single use will be added next to the circulation desk by the end of March. That’s a total of 79 computers! Of course if you prefer to work in another location, perhaps the quieter third floor, you can always rent a laptop.
