You Can Online – helping to fix the digital divide
We want to support our Warwickshire residents, who could be experiencing some form of digital exclusion in everyday life.
Digital exclusion comes in many forms and can have real-world impacts such as the ability to communicate with family members and friends, find work and develop career skills, and seek out the best deals on everyday expenses, as well as feeling lonely and isolated from the digital world.
Here are three key ways we are helping to #FixtheDigitalDivide
Access to devices
It can be really hard when you don’t have the use of a device to help with study, working, or just staying connected with friends and family.
You Can Online is helping by providing Lenovo M10 tablets for loan. These are free to adult library members, for a six week loan period.
