PLA Digital Literacy Workshop Incentive Office Hour

Every day community members who lack basic computer knowledge and skills access their local public libraries hoping to complete life tasks many of us take for granted. The Public Library Association (PLA) is proud to partner with AT&T to expand upon its work helping libraries and their communities close the digital divide through new and improved courses and training materials. To support local adoption, PLA is launching the PLA Digital Literacy Workshop Incentive, supported by AT&T, which offers funding for public libraries to conduct digital literacy training in their communities and promote the new and improved courses. Applications are being accepted until 11:59 PM Central on June 10, 2022. Learn more about this opportunity and how to apply during this “office hours” style on-demand webinar.
