Stay tuned in the coming months for new digital literacy offerings like:
- Coding for Kids workshops, with a focus on programming robots
- Makerspaces, where kids get to explore interests, learn to use tools and materials, and develop creative projects
- Sessions to help patrons learn how to access Library e-books
- Tech Buddies: Teaming up seniors with tech questions and youth with know-how
What is digital literacy?
It is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, create, manage and communicate information.
Why digital literacy?
Digital literacy plays an important part in overall literacy, as people spend more time using technology to find and manage information. The North Grenville Public Library is working to meet the evolving technological and technical needs of community members by offering useful—and hopefully fun!—digital literacy programs.
What we currently do
We offer public access computers with internet, wireless connection for mobile devices, printing and scanning. Staff members assist patrons in using the technology on demand. Our current children’s programming includes Makerspaces that integrate STEAM principles that complement digital literacy.
We want to do more!
In addition to our upcoming new programs, we’d like to hear your ideas for supporting digital literacy. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
