Farewell Keith Walker

Today was the end of an era as Keith Walker, Director of Library Services, departed the college after 24 years of service. The Vera Bracken Library played host to a farewell meet-and-greet event that was attended by many dozens of well wishers from the college and community.

We all wish Keith best success in his new position as Director and Chief Executive Officer at the Lethbridge Public Library. He will assume this post on Monday, May 4th.

College Wireless Internet: Bigger & Stronger!

The college's wireless (Wi-Fi) Internet access has changed for the better! The older library network name is now defunct. Anyone wanting to connect to the Wi-Fi network can now do so by connecting to the network named: MHC-Public.

In addition to the network name change, the Wi-Fi access points have been expanded and strengthened. Wi-Fi access has been strengthened in the Vera Bracken Library with more access points, and the Cafeteria/Internet Café and Centennial Hall now have Wi-Fi access as well.

Access to Wi-Fi will remain barrier free (with no cost or user name/password sets required) to the public, staff and students. Access to network printers and storage drives will remain inaccessible though.
