VICTORIA - Libraries across British Columbia are getting $3 million to enhance their digital services.

The Ministry of Education says the one-time investment will permit greater access to online learning and reading resources.

Just under $2 million will be used to support electronic resource licensing and expand online common collections for all public libraries.

The ministry says in a statement the remainder will go directly to B.C.'s 79 public library systems for everything from expanded wireless networks to buying scanners, tablets, microphones, cameras and other equipment.
