IBERVILLE PARISH LIBRARY --PLAQUEMINE BRANCH-- NOW PROVIDING LAPTOPS FOR CHECKOUT
The Plaquemine Branch of the Iberville Parish Library is now providing 10 laptops for checkout. The laptops are part of a federal grant awarded to the State Library of Louisiana. Any library patron who is at least 18 years old and has no lost library materials or overdue fines on his record may check out a laptop by showing his public library card and valid Louisiana-issued picture I.D.
The laptops have been installed with Microsoft Office 2007, among other programs. Microsoft Office is the leading software application suite and includes Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher and Word. Students completing homework projects, adults conducting research or who are job hunting, and those who are simply curious what all the fuss is about will be able to check out the laptops and experience what it is to use a computer and work in the comfort of their homes. All laptops are wireless-enabled, so they can access the Internet from any public hot spot.
