Bob Lagassé, MLA for Dawson Trail, announced that the provincial Rural Library Technological Sustainability Program is providing funding to Bibliothéque Tache Library in Lorette.

“I am pleased to confirm this funding for ongoing technological advancements and the great team here at Bibliothéque Tache Library,” said Lagassé. “Libraries are important assets to communities and citizens of all ages and backgrounds for work, leisure and entertainment.”

Bibliothéque Tache Library will receive $3,774.51 this year to assist in providing technology services to clients. The Rural Library Technological Sustainability Program provides funding to rural libraries for technology services. Funds are distributed based on weighted criteria including the number of municipalities and the population served by the libraries, as well as available municipal funding.

“Libraries can build bridges between communities, inspire young readers and offer the key that unlocks the imagination,” said Sport, Culture and Heritage Minister Rochelle Squires. “We want to ensure the support we provide and the services that are offered are delivered as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
