Seymour Library is among over 160 public libraries nationwide awarded funding by the Public Library Association (PLA) to conduct digital literacy workshops using DigitalLearn.org resources. The PLA Digital Literacy Workshop Incentive, supported by AT&T, provides support to libraries of all sizes to conduct digital literacy training in their communities and help close the digital divide.
PLA’s free training site, DigitalLearn.org, helps community members build skills and confidence using technology. Seymour Library will help community members utilize these resources in a series of upcoming workshops focused on the basics of mobile devices, video conferencing, cybersecurity, and resume development.
The Public Library Association’s site, DigitalLearn.org is an online hub for digital literacy support and training. The site launched in June 2013 and builds upon and fosters the work of libraries and community organizations as they work to increase digital literacy across the nation.
Equipment for the workshops was funded by the PLA Digital Literacy Workshop Incentive and IMLS American Rescue Plan.
