Pearl River Public Library [PRPL] has announced the impending grand opening of the
“Learning Lab @ PRPL.”
Following a year of extremely popular computer classes for kids, teens and adults, the director and the Library Board have decided to continue and to expand computer learning at the library. The biggest part of this expansion is the library’s new Learning Lab, a modern, glass room, outfitted with 15 new Chromebooks, a digital scanning system and a new big-screen TV monitor.
The Lab will be a home for beginning, intermediate and advanced Code Clubs, an Intro to Website Design for Teens, Intro to Chromebooks and Google Drive for Adults, and Teen Tech Tutors offering technology help for adults and seniors. PRPL will also be offering a Teen/Tween Math Club run by S.T.A.C. Math professor Meghan DeWitt, as well digital photography, genealogy workshops, a chess club and more.
The grand opening this Saturday will include a slides-show video presentation recapping the past year of programming and a look ahead to the future. A ribbon cutting will follow.
The public is invited to “test-drive” the library’s new Chromebooks and digital scanner. PRPL Learning Lab Ambassadors and our Teen Tech Tutors will be on hand to answer questions.
The grand opening will take place Saturday, June 4, 3 p.m. at Pearl River Public Library, 80 Franklin Avenue, Pearl River. Phone contact: 845-735-4084.
