The local library in Merritt has two laptops to use in the study carousels at the Garcia street facility. The laptops are two of ten that were dispersed from a program called literacy Merritt.

The librarian said it was a program to help seniors stay in contact with grand children that may be living elsewhere.

The lap tops are available for use without log in or a library card, the library has wi-fi service.
