Getting Technical at the Library

Did you know that there are more public libraries offering free technology training than there are businesses offering technology training?

Libraries rule.

Library resources support learning new technologies.

“More libraries—5,400—offer technology training classes than there are computer training businesses in the U.S. Every day, 14,700 people attend free library computer classes—a retail value of $2.2 million. That’s $629 million worth of computer classes annually (based on 286 business days per year)” (ALA, 2009; OCLC, 2010; ReferenceUSA Business & Residential Directory; Geek Squad).
