Connect with Tech Week is a citywide initiative spearheaded by the San Francisco Public Library, supported by Microsoft and Friends of San Francisco Public Library, to promote online access and tech skills and to reduce digital disparities in our communities.
More than 100,000 San Francisco residents are not proficient at using the Internet and digital devices. As more basic services such as housing applications and job searching move online, many are left behind,especially seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families. Last year, more than 2,000 people participated in Connect with Tech Week, gaining knowledge and resources to help them navigate our increasingly digital world.
