A new technology center is open at the Tippecanoe County Public Library in downtown Lafayette.
It’s called The Portal, and includes language learning tools, a video conferencing suite, and a family computing center.
County Librarian Jos Holman says the project was funded in part by donations, with the remainder coming from unused tax revenues.
"It was money that we saved up over the past, I would say, six to eight years, called the 'LIRF Fund' -- Library Improvement Reserve Fund. And so we set aside money and saved that up for the eventual building of this."
