The Atwater Library and Computer Centre’s history dates back to the 1800s, when we were known as the Mechanic’s Institute of Montreal. We were one of the first adult educational institutions open to the public, with a focus on technical skills such as drafting, and public lectures on issues of importance.
In the 21st Century, technical knowledge and information exchange have been transformed by the Internet. The Atwater Library and Computer Centre continues to provide a vital service by helping our communities connect to the information they need and by providing courses and workshops that help young and old master computers, the Internet and digital media.
We have a bank of computers open to the public, provide free WiFi throughout our building and beyond, we offer courses and workshops in our dedicated computer classroom, and we run the innovative Digital Literacy Project that partners with community groups to bring technical skills to youth and marginalized adults.
