Each year, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance hosts Digital Inclusion Week.

Digital Inclusion Week – May 8-13th

Each year, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance hosts Digital Inclusion Week. This year, Digital Inclusion Week is May 8-13th. So, what is Digital Inclusion? It’s the recognition that as we rely more and more on technology, we need reliable access to adequate broadband internet, devices, education, and assistance in order to fully participate in society. Digital Inclusion Week is a way to bring recognition to this need, and to help advance the cause of areas and population groups who do not have this access.

Whether it be lack of rural internet access, discomfort with technology, or inability to afford home internet service, the Pulaski County Library District is here to help! At your library, you can access free computer and internet use at any of our patron computers. We also have free WiFi available 24 hours a day, if you’d like to bring your own phone, tablet, or laptop to the library. Our librarians are always available to help troubleshoot technology issues and questions and try to help you feel comfortable completing whatever task you need to do.

Beginning in June, we will also be offering basic computer classes at the Richland Library. These are made available using laptops purchased through a grant from the Missouri State Library. Space is limited and you must register for the class at the Richland Library.

We hope to see you at the library, and help with your technology needs!
