Lincoln County Libraries Foundation (Lincoln County Libraries)
Log Number: ARPML-251034-OMLS-22
Lincoln County Libraries in Libby, Montana, will advance digital inclusion in the rural communities of Libby, Eureka, and Troy and in more remote, unincorporated areas of Lincoln County. As these communities recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, expanded access to digital resources will help connect residents in a world that is more regularly online. The libraries will conduct a community digital access assessment to identify gaps and needs in equipment, staffing, and program development. A technology specialist will be hired to manage the community survey and data collection. Community feedback will inform the development and implementation of a six-part digital literacy workshop series. Free, in-person workshops will take place at three library branches and will be recorded for future use by additional audiences.
