Yonkers library unveils new vision for future

http://www.lohud.com/story/news/education/2017/01/24/yonkers-public-library/96969342/

Even though there is an increasing use of technology in our society, there are still many people who not have access to this technology and the Internet. Many public libraries are trying to work with schools and the community to bring technology into the library for the residents of the community to use. I particularly like that one of the goals in Yonkers is to, "Close the digital literacy gap."

        Johnny,

        Yes, indeed "closing the digital literacy gap" is one of the top goals of libraries. Especially now with the issue of fake news. Sadly, most of our students are highly social media literate but lack digital literacy. Here is good website on teaching the skill of identifying fake news. http://www.easybib.com/guides/evaluating-fake-news-resources/
