Got tech problems while job hunting?  BASIC training and the tutoring program are made possible by a Libraries Lead with Digital Skills grant. This is from an initiative by the American Library Association and Public Library Association, sponsored by Grow with Google. Grow with Google is the tech company’s economic opportunity initiative.
