  • We're pleased to announce that we are a  recipient of a $10,000 Bullet Aid Grant from New York State Senator John J. Flanagan (2nd Senate District).  The money was used to create a new state-of-the-art Technology Center on the lower level of the library. The renovated Technology Center now boasts three Vizio 55" wall mounted smart televisions, which have the ability to mirror the display of the instructor's machine, Apple TV and any other HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) capable hardware. This makes following along with an instructor very easy.  Each television is also equipped with a floor level HDMI port for easy access to gaming systems or other external input devices. For students, there are ten Dell computers with 23" LCD monitors now
