Computer Lab Upgrade   

Tired of crashing programs?  So are we!  We're upgrading the computers in the lab to Windows 7, which should be a more stable operating system.  We will be closing the lab on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, to do the upgrade.  Sorry for the interruption in service, but we think you'll be happier when the computers are all upgraded.
