Alice Shaver Foundation provides new computer lab for the Milne Library

Through a generous grant from the Alice Saver Foundation, Williamstown, MA the Milne Public Library in Williamstown upgraded their computer lab. The grant paid for 6 new computers that replace PC’s that were almost 10 years old, plus new wide screen monitors. The new lab has faster speed and greater access to new applications and software. The patrons are all remarking on the incredible improvements to a highly used service.

In addition the library has added computer training on the website www.milnelibrary.org. The online service is called Atomic Training and provides access to online, on-demand video training tutorials on the most popular software. Users can improve job skills by learning specific software training tutorials, it helps users of all ages become more proficient on basic computer applications and it’s paced to use when time allows.  Some of the training tutorials include: Twitter, Skype, iPad, Word, Excel, Photoshop and many more to help with new technology.

The Library is highly dependent on fundraising and grants to provide the vital library that we have and to maintain the second highest circulation for a library in Berkshire County. You can anticipate that many users will enjoy sharing this up-to-date computer service to anyone who visits the Milne Library.

 

The Milne Public Library is located on Route 2 across from the Williams Inn. The hours of the Library are 10:5:30, Wednesday 10-8
