Building Digital Literacy
Bridging the Digital Divide
Doing research and homework means getting online, and students without internet access can struggle to keep up with school assignments. The Library Foundation continues to secure funding for students to have access to Wi-Fi hotspots and Chromebook bundles. With more than 1,000 people on the waiting list, there is a significant and ongoing need for this program.
After School Fun
SLCL's popular Coding 101 program gives kids ages 10–14 the chance to learn basic coding skills and take home a free Chromebook. Access to programming like this inspires children to investigate career paths in STEM related fields.
