The Nampa Public Library will host a ribbon cutting July 26 as they unveil the Together Treasure Valley Computer Lab for Kids. The ribbon cutting program will begin at 1 p.m. in the children’s area on the first floor of the library.
The dedicated computer lab for kids was made possible by a generous $8,000 donation from Together Treasure Valley, as well as $2,000 in matching funds from the Nampa Library Foundation.
“With this donation from Together Treasure Valley, Nampa children who may not otherwise have the opportunity, will have access to digital resources to enhance their learning and ensure their futures are brighter,” said Claire Connley, Nampa Library Director.
“We are pleased to help fund the children’s computer lab, which will give our future leaders early access to technology,” said Tom Corrick, Chief Executive Officer, Boise Cascade and Together Treasure Valley member. Together Treasure Valley is a community partnership of local business leaders who have joined together to fund community-based projects in the Treasure Valley.
The computer lab will consist of six computers loaded with software and databases that reinforce the excitement of learning, exploration and challenge in a skills-based environment. They will be in the first floor children’s area, away from other public computers and only accessible to children.
The impact to children in the community could be significant, as more than 26,000 children attended Nampa Public Library programs in fiscal year 2017.
