Bridging the Divide.png

From sharing photos of the grandkids, viewing a bank statement, or trying to schedule an appointment with a doctor, more and more of our daily lives are moving into the digital world.  While it is just a few keystrokes or finger swipes away, without the knowledge and experience, that world can seem to be a chasm without a bridge. The Chilton Public Library, in partnership with Calumet County Aging and Disability Resources Centers (ADRC), will be offering a yearlong series of classes to help bridge that digital divide and increase the comfort level of navigating the online world.  These lessons will be held in-person at the Chilton Public Library starting in January 2022. Lessons will be geared towards those with no-skill or low-skill digital comfort and are offered free of charge. Classes will run the 4th Tuesday of the month at 1:00 PM and the next Wednesday at 6:00 PM.
