The Senior Center and the teen program at the Library recently received grants funds from Google through the La Vista Community Foundation for the addition of technology to those facilities.
Each grant is for $5,000 and was presented recently by La Vista Community Foundation Board President Neal Krauss to staff and program participants.
The Senior Center grant will be used for the purchase of equipment for a computer lab designated for use by senior residents of La Vista and surrounding communities. Equipment to be purchased includes laptops and computer storage solutions.
The Library’s teen program will be creating a tech center for students ages 13-18 to include iPads, hotspots and 3D printer.
Staff will be working in the coming months to make these purchases and get them installed. Watch the City’s social media, website and a future edition of this newsletter for more information on accessing this new technology.
