Technology is a tool designed to help people solve real problems. To find technology that matters, start with what matters most to people in your community. Some may be building job skills for a better quality of life, others want to stay connected to friends, and kids trying to define themselves and figure out the world. Many adults are too!
There is no one size fits all solution to technology in every community. The problems that need solving differ from place to place, and person to person. Libraries can help by helping people gain exposure to new technology tools, providing basic skills training, and provding a place to meet and discuss how technology can shape our world for the better.
Every library chooses to help in different ways, based on their own needs and resources. This set of pages is designed to expand the number of resources available to everyone.
Here are a few popular entry-points to get started. Some options are quick and easy, while others encourage you to dig deep, think bigger, and explore all that is possible with technology. Whatever you choose, we're here to help.
