Early Literacy Stations for Children
The Bonfield Public Library received an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant to purchase a new early learning computer station.
The goal of these computer stations is to provide early literacy for young children in our community. One of the library’s mandates is to support families with fostering a lifelong love of books and a desire to learn in children that will help them live productive and satisfying lives.
Language Learning Tool
Here at the Bonfield Public Library we offer the following:
Rosetta Stone revolves around a simple idea: learning a language should be fun, easy and effective. It approaches language learning using a natural method that teaches new language directly, without translation. That means no more confusing grammar explanations or mind numbing vocabulary lists to memorize.
In Library use only. Available at the library computer stations. Currently the library offers the French Language course. Made possible through the Ontario Trillium Foundation grant.
With our new HP Laserjet Wireless ePrint/AirPrint you can send your print wirelessly to the printer. It’s easy to print documents from your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch without having to install additional software. This service has been made possible through funding from The Government of Ontario-Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism, Culture and Industry.
Multifunction/All in One Photocopier
We can print in colour,, black & white, copy, scan, fax, reduce or enlarge document size, print on one or two-sided, fine tune light or dark output, scan-to-email and scan to USB key. It works as our network and as a standalone printer all on one device so as to have a smaller footprint. Funding was provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
The Bonfield Public Library has a charging station with dual USB charging ports for your laptops, tablet or portable device.

Centre for Equitable Library Access
If you or someone you know has a visual or print disability, a partnership between the Bonfield Public Library and the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA) offers alternative ways of reading in a variety of formats. Some restrictions do apply. CELA materials can only be accessed by someone with a print disability as defined in Canadian copyright law. Access must be restricted to people with print disabilities because the copyright law allows CELA to reproduce published materials in alternative formats for the exclusive use of people with print disabilities. Visit www.celalibrary.ca for more information. Once registered with CELA contact the Bonfield Public Library.
