August 14 (9-10 am)

EveryoneOn @your library (Nebraska Library Commission)

EveryoneOn.org is a national three-year media campaign—currently underway—to raise awareness of the importance of digital literacy. The campaign’s mission is to promote the personal relevance of computer and high-speed Internet use among non-users, and to connect them with free digital literacy training. It is likely that, in many cases, this training will be provided through school and public libraries. In Year One, the National Ad Council campaign will focus on the call to action: “Find free training near you!” It will direct customers to call, text, or visit a Website with a directory of sites where they can receive one-on-one instruction and/or classes.
