Digital Equipment to Loan.
Great news and with the thanks of LMETB and The Comic Relief fund we have some laptops available to loan for people in our community and surrounding areas. Priority for laptops will be given to students and people who are on our courses. We also have a number of tablets and Wi-Fi dongles available to people so they can keep in contact with friends and family who are both near and far. We can set up and show you how to use these devices so don’t let the Fear of not knowing how to use any of our digital equipment stop you from asking for it. We’re here to help you become the digital wizard you know you can be. If you are interested in taking a loan of any of our digital equipment, please get in contact at email@example.com
We will also have access to some more laptops soon thanks to the Laptops for Loan scheme, the initiative aims to address the digital divide compounded by the coronavirus outbreak which has caused disproportionate hardship on those who are disadvantaged or marginalised. ‘Laptop for Loan’ scheme which will be rolled out soon and will see Trim FRC as well as other organisations receive laptops through the library service to us for training purposes. Thanks to Meath County Council and Clonee Data centre.
