Orland Township’s Free Cybercafe Open to Residents
Orland Park, April 4, 2011- The Orland Township Cybercafe is open every Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Located in the Technology Center at 14807 S. Ravinia Avenue, residents can take advantage of free internet access, Microsoft Office 2010 and more. A computer "guru" is on hand to assist participants with computer challenges and as an added bonus, complimentary coffee and snacks are served.
"Orland Township, in 2010, created several new programs to teach residents and the community's seniors computer skills," Supervisor Paul O'Grady said. "The Orland Township Cybercafe is a natural extension of that. Residents will be able to put the skills they're learning to use at the Cybercafe and, if questions arise, consult the computer guru and get immediate answers.”
In 2011, household computers have become commonplace but the peace and quiet some may need to accomplish technology-related tasks is not always available. The Cybercafe is a quiet and comfortable computer lab that residents can visit when in need of a peaceful environment. Those who reside in Orland Township may tackle homework assignments, research, work-related projects or even escape the house and surf the net at Orland Township.
Proof of residency is required. For additional information, please call (708) 403-4222.
