Tech Boost Coming to Bramptons’ Public Library
Province Improving and Expanding IT and Digital Services
October 15, 2017
Ontario is making it easier for people in Brampton to stay connected by increasing access to technology, digital services and training opportunities at local public libraries.
The province is supporting Brampton Public Library in Brampton to give local residents better access to resources such as Wi-Fi hot spot lending programs, computers, printers, e-readers and technology-focused training.
Improving digital resources and services in rural, remote and First Nation public libraries was one of the top three ideas selected by people during Budget Talks, the consultations for the 2017 Ontario Budget. Ontario has expanded on what was heard during the budget consultations and extended this support to all public libraries in the province.
Investing in Ontario’s public libraries is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Our libraries provide accessible services to the people of Brampton. This investment will support Brampton Public Library to make services even better and continue to enrich people’s lives right here in our own community.”
— Harinder Malhi, MPP, Brampton-Springdale
“Public libraries play a critical role in our communities by providing people with free access to information, technology and a variety of programs that support lifelong learning and skills development. With this investment, our government will continue to support libraries as they improve their services and connect more people to web-based information, training and opportunities.”
— Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport
"Public libraries are an essential community service in today's quickly evolving world of digital technologies. Brampton Library is pleased to receive provincial funding to help support our citizens in improved access to web-based information and opportunities. This funding will provide support for the thousands of Bramptonians who visit our branches and website every day to access free wifi, computers and electronic resources, including books and newspapers from around the world."
— Rebecca Raven, Chief Executive Officer, Brampton Library
