The Elizabeth Morey Memorial Library in Torbay, Newfoundland, was founded in 1972. The library was named in memory of Torbay's first town clerk, and shares the Torbay Town Hall with the Town Office, Fire Hall, and an RNC Post.
This year we are supporting a variety of programs. You'll find the details below.

Our Community Access Program (CAP)

Apologies. This image is not viewable right now.

    The goal of our CAP Program is to increase our community's awareness of the technological services available to them from our library.
    Free internet training sessions will be offered this summer; the first of which took place on Tuesday, July 26, at 6:30pm. It went better than expected, and our CAP Intern would like to thank everyone that attended. For more information on further sessions, see our Training Sessions page.
    Our new CAP Intern that will be conducting these sessions for the summer of 2005 is Hannah Ploskonka. She looks forward to helping our community utilise the electronic resources available in the 21st century.
