Library services in Flinton and Denbigh expand to offer fax service. Both branches are now fully accessible thanks to grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation
Thanks to funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation of $13,600 over 12 months, both Flinton and Denbigh Library now offer fax service. The grant has enabled the Township to purchase new print/copy/scan and fax machines for each location, a service not readily available in the area. This funding has also enabled us to complete the update of our computer systems and purchase new 24” monitors for all machines. Updates will also be made to the Large Print, Audio and DVD sections on a regular basis with this funding. The installation of an accessible workstation at the Flinton Library makes both locations fully accessible.
“I am pleased to see the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s contribution to the improvements at these libraries. Providing access to these communications and information tools at these locations is important and will be a great benefit for many rural residents who may not otherwise have access. I congratulate the team at the Addington Highlands Public Library for their continuing efforts on behalf of local residents.”-
Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox&Addington
“This grant will have a positive impact on both communities. The new service and upgrades will enhance access to information and communications technology services for all residents and visitors to our area.
We are grateful for the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s continued commitment and support in building a healthy and vibrant community.”-
June Phillips, CEO, Addington Highlands Public Library.
