Public Computer Center

Launched in 2010, The Public Computer Center (PCC) provides free public access computing services and instruction to the general public. This is part of a statewide initiative, [email protected], funded by the Recovery Act through Feburary 2012. The focus is on services for the unemployed and improving computer literacy. Our classes, private instruction, and facilities are open and available to anyone! So whether you’ve never touched a computer before or are looking to improve your skill-level with specific software, there will be a course for you! Check back often for upcoming courses, consultant availability, and additional resources. —– The New York State Library, a unit of the Office of Cultural Education within the New York State Education Department (NYSED), has been awarded $9.5 million in a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to expand computer access in public libraries across New York State. The funding is being provided through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP).
