Benefits for Members

Vision: For every Ohioan to be able to fully participate in online government, search and apply for jobs online, understand the risks and benefits to internet finance, connect with family online, and protect personal information in the digital age. 

Need:   In a recent survey of Ohio libraries conducted by the nonprofit OCLC, 53% of rural libraries report that they are the only place in their community that provides free internet access and digital literacy training. In this same survey, lack of staff was cited as the number one reason that libraries of all sizes were unable to provide digital literacy classes.
