CLINTON, La. (AP) - The Audubon Regional Library is installing new computers for public use at its branches in Greensburg, Jackson and Clinton.
Library Director Mary Bennett Lindsey tells The Advocate computer usage at the libraries has increased each year since 2006 and the Louisiana Library Connection Database usage has increased 33 percent over 2011.
Lindsey says some popular uses for the library system's computers are for job searches, unemployment registration, school work, preparation for the LEAP tests, dealing with state agencies and filing income tax returns.
She says the state library databases include newspapers published since 1985, magazine articles, an automobile repair center, consumer health information, career guides, the Louisiana Jobs and Career Center and a research center and tutoring help for students.
