The College of New Caledonia is donating a computer to local literacy.

The Prince George Literary Advisory Committee was in need of a new computer after their existing one broke down.

CNC offered to replace the computer so the not-for-profit wouldn’t have to pay for a new one.

“Literacy amongst all age groups is so very important” said Acting Associate Dean Alison Anderson. “We know that these groups have limited resources available to them and do such an invaluable job for our communities.”

Anderson also noted the importance of the computer to the committee.

“In terms of literacy, it’s no longer just reading and writing for people that have any problems, it’s using the computer” said Anderson. “This group really needs a computer to make sure that they can communicate.”

The Literary Advisory Committee promotes the importance of literacy within the community and helps connect potential students with teachers.
