The community literacy lab at Southeast High School is now open thanks to a $100,000 investment from the Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation.
The goals of the center are in sync with community-wide efforts to promote literacy.
"This literacy lab provides us with the resources to expand support for students and extend that support into the community," principal Karey Williams said. "We hope the wave of excitement for literacy that began during the summer will continue to build momentum as this resource begins helping our students and community to achieve their goals."
The Raider Nation Literacy Lab will bring the Internet, computer technology, and books together, expanding access to information to students and adults in the community.
Goals for the Center include enhancing individual's resource skills, provide opportunities for lifelong learning, and develop technical abilities to help visitors develop workforce skills.
