Delaware Department of State
To address the online access needs of economically vulnerable communities in Delaware, its Department of State’s Division of Libraries is proposing an equipment upgrade and the expansion of a training program at public computer centers throughout the state. The project plans to serve residents by providing public access computers, assistive technology, videoconferencing capabilities, and wireless networking. The computer centers at the Dover, Georgetown, Seaford, and Wilmington libraries will become Job/Learning Labs focusing specifically on the needs of the unemployed, with specialized training for resume building, job search, and interview skills. The project also proposes to expand Spanish-language computer training programs in Wilmington, the area with the largest Hispanic population in Delaware.
