Digital Drop-in Centres

We are very excited about the new Digital Drop-in Centres that we are starting in various communities throughout the Northern Frontenac and Lennox & Addington region. Thanks to our Ontario Trillium Foundation grant for the “Alleviating Social Isolation through Technology” (ASITT) project we have seven Drop-ins set up and more will follow. The Drop-ins will offer free Wi-Fi and use of computer and other digital equipment (printer, tablets, ipad, digital camera, etc.). There will also be Digital Coaches on-hand to give some advice, quick how-to’s and assist with minor digital “challenges” and questions. There is a schedule below or look at our Calendar page for locations, dates and times. Don’t forget to check back regularly, as we will be offering more in the future. Please contact us for more info.
