Bruce County Library purchases iPads thanks to NPX donation

Bruce County Public Library received a donation of funds dedicated to purchasing ten new iPads and cases from nuclear consulting specialists NPX.

NPX Engineer Claudia Nashmi and NPX Program Manager Alec Holla with Bruce County Public Library Director Brooke McLean and Digital Initiatives Coordinator Jeremy Clark at the Bruce County Public Library Kincardine Branch.

NPX has established a strong sense of community and have worked on several local fundraising and awareness campaigns. You can learn about all the incredible initiatives they have been spearheading on the Our Community section of their website. Donated iPads will be distributed to library branches to be used for instruction and demonstrations, including a new program being developed aimed at introducing seniors to technology.

Bruce County Public Library Digital Initiatives Coordinator Jeremy Clark recognized the need for new equipment at the library branches. “The iPads are a key part of the library’s mission to support digital learning experiences for residents of all ages, both in the library and throughout the community. These tablets are used with the library’s coding and robotics kits as well as to offer support to people needing a hand using their own devices or the library’s digital collections.”

NPX Project manager, Alec Holla added “NPX is proud to be a part of this community and happy to give back to its residents. The libraries are very important community hubs in Bruce County and the mission of digital learning fits in well with our company vision. We are excited to see the various uses that Bruce County Public Libraries has planned for these iPads come to life and we look forward to supporting them further in the future.”

New, up-to-date technology ensures BCPL can effectively support learning and help meet the goal of being a Digital Community Facilitator, which was outlined in the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan released earlier this year. Bruce County Public Library is exceptionally grateful for this donation and what it means to be able to support the residents of Bruce County better.
