Derby is privileged to be the home of three sites chosen by The Valley Council for Health & Human Service Organizations (VCHHSO) and Healthy Valley 2000 as Public Internet Access Sites. Back in 1996, the Derby Neck Library, Derby Senior Center and T.E.A.M. Inc. received new multimedia computers and training and began offering free access to the Internet for anyone interested. This project was accomplished through a $31,500 grant from the Katharine Matthies Foundation. Click here to learn more.
In addition to the three sites chosen for the project, the Derby Public Library and the Griffin Hospital Health Resource Center also provide public access to the Internet. Derby residents are urged to take advantage of the opportunity. In addition to providing access to the wealth of information on the Internet, one of the unique benefits for those who take advantage is the ability to get their own free e-mail account so that they can begin to communicate with the world through e-mail.
