Connect with Tech May 7–12 - San Francisco Public Library teams up with 20+ organizations to help bridge the digital divide

For Immediate Release: April 12, 2018 Media Contact: Katherine Jardine (415) 557-4295;
More than 100,000 San Francisco residents lack Internet access at home and/or are not proficient at using the Internet and digital devices. As more basic services are moving online, many are left behind, especially seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families. They lack the knowledge or support to use the Internet and gain digital skills, and view the Internet as difficult, unsafe to use or irrelevant. Last year more than 2,000 people participated in this annual event; gaining knowledge and resources to help them in the ever increasing tech required world. Tech training programs are offered all week throughout the Library system and partner locations. Programs range from basic computer skills to advanced coding classes and are taught by library staff, tech workers and industry professionals. The full schedule of more than 60 events and classes is available
