Digital Literacy Classes

terDigital Literacy, as defined by the American Library Association, is the ability to use information and communication technologies (computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.)  to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information.  It requires both cognitive and technical skills.

The Inglewood Public Library has received a two-year grant from the California Public Utilities Commission to provide Digital Literacy classes to children and teens ages 6 to 18 years.  

Current classes require a 6-week commitment and advance registration.  

REGISTRATION INFORMATION:  Applications for Winter 2020 will be accepted between January 13 and January 31.   Classes begin February 3.
