A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on Thursday to officially open the Douglass Technology Center, a branch of the Detroit Public Library, and will offer free computer classes, access to the library’s online tools, individualized assistance to new computer users, and free Wi-Fi access.
“The Douglass Technology Center will stand as a major resource in the city to help improve the quality of life for residents and serve as a quality learning environment for both children and adults,” says Jo Anne Mondowney, executive director of the Detroit Public Library.
The Douglass Branch for Specialized Services is located in the Woodbridge neighborhood of Detroit, on Grand River and Trumbull and will also provide Library On Wheels, a bookmobile that provides service to apartment buildings, nursing homes, and senior centers.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. and is open to the public. The center will also provide tours of the new facility.
