$20,000 Grant : Web Literacy Training
Posted on September 12, 2017

The opportunity to gain experience from the Mozilla team has perpetuated a powerful internal message at TLCPL to continue evolving, innovating, and investing in staff development (see our Strategic Plan).
Where we are
A large portion of the staff have graduated Module 1 and are moving into Modules 2 and 3. We hope to have the majority of the 400 staff members through all 3 Modules. This will make training all staff by the end of 2018 a realistic goal. We want to ensure our staff are equipped with a solid foundation in Web Literacy so they can help customers 1-on-1 and in class situations.
Using grant funds
$20,000 is a lot of money. We put the bulk of that money towards new laptops for training staff. After all staff have been trained, the laptops will be integrated into request-able kits for librarians to use for public training classes. With limited space at our locations, it makes sense for the kits to be shared between all of them.
