Pottsboro library grant gives more digital access
The Pottsboro Library was the only library in the country to see that grant, which is helping them with a digital navigator program.
"Classes or one-on-one help," said Pottsboro Library Director, Dianne Connery. "We get a lot of people who just need to do something specific on their phone, so the navigator can help in those."
The goal for the navigators is to help with internet and device access and is focused on usability.
"We want people, who may not be familiar or comfortable with technology," said Connery. "This is the place where you can get the skills you need."
You can find gaming computers, a 3D printer, and there are days when the digital navigator will be there helping people learn through tablets.
"Technology has been our focus, so many people when you hear library you think books," said Connery. "You think story time, summer reading. And that's not what we do at the Pottsboro library."
Telehealth and an E-Sports grant both separately brought more technological help to the library. Now there are around 50 tablets being offered for adults taking classes to learn how to use them.
