Summary

Q and A

Overview of grant The limited number of PCs available has resulted in waiting lists that grow as more customers discover the benefits of the internet and electronic databases. At the same time physical space for more public computers is finite. Loaning these laptops will reduce waiting times for computers during peak periods without changes to millwork needed for additional desktop PCs.
