The Lancaster Veterans Memorial Library is dedicated to providing a wide variety of resources to it's patrons in a variety of media. Towards that end we have a number of computers, a language learning lab, and other digital resources available:
World Language LabThe World Language Laboratory is a new section of the library made possible from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program Grant and the TEAL Technology Expertise, Access and Learning for all Texans Project. Every age group will benefit from the ability to engage in learning any of 22 languages and ESL courses.
Professor TeachesProfessor Teacher is your personal instructor at the library, with lessons on Microsoft Office 2010. The lessons are fun, fast, and interactive. See the librarian about getting started.
Genealogy CD Computer

It has grown to contain over 140 genealogy CDs, including AniMap, PERSI, the Native American Collection, land records, marriage records, family histories, Social Security Index, census indexes, and many of the Family Tree Family History CDs. The Genealogy CD Computer is located in the Welton R. Fail and Mildred Chapman Fail Genealogical Resource Center at the library. You do not need a library card to access this computer, however you will need to leave identification with the information desk to use the CDs.
