Grant to Help Complete Computer Center

Monmouth, IL – A private grant will help complete remodeling for Monmouth's Community Technology Center. The third floor of the town's historic Patton Building is being remodeled into two classrooms with a total of 31 computers for classes. Center Director Linda Blaine says the center should open in May. Community organizations are developing introductory courses to help more people from the community learn how to use computers. Blaine says a later phase will set up a smaller room with six computers for walk-in use.
