Area residents will soon have a chance to tour the Lawrence Public Library’s new computer lab.
The library will host an open house of the Sunflower Broadband Community Computer lab from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 15 at the library, 707 Vt.
Sunflower Broadband and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation both provided funding for the library to open the new lab, which adds 12 new computer stations to the library in a remodeled section of the library’s lower level.
The additional computers bring the library’s total number of public access computers to 62.
The open house will feature a brief welcome, refreshments and tours.
Sunflower Broadband provided funding to the library for construction and lab furnishings, while the Gates Foundation provided a grant for the new computers and software.
Sunflower Broadband is owned by The World Company, which is the parent company of the Lawrence Journal-World.
