LETTERS: Library thanks foundation for gift

To the editor:

The staff and board of trustees of Hillsboro Public Library would like to thank the Hillsboro Community Foundation Board of Directors and its donors for the recent gift of $500.

The money will be used toward the purchase of new public Internet computers and additional memory for existing public computers. The library has an average of 18 users per day on the four machines currently available to the public. The newest of these computers is seven years old.

It is necessary to upgrade them to provide reliable computers for patrons needing to complete resumes, job applications, and file taxes. Our computers are also used by patrons to communicate with family members. Our services are free.

We are very grateful for this gift which will be used wisely. Thank you once again.

Cathleen Fish
Library director
