Digital Skills Training.

   The Bogota Public Library has announced they will be hosting a series workshop that will focus on providing digital skills training. This will take place starting on Monday-9-March and continued through-out that week until Saturday-14-March.  Working in conjunction  with the American Library Association, and the Public Library Association the Bogota Library will be offering the opportunity to learn and enhance skills in the skills needed to be successful in the digital based economy.  Funding is sponsored by "Grow With Google", as part of the company’s economic opportunity initiative. 
  In a statement by Library Director Chelsea Coleman she said.
“We're thrilled to have the support of ALA, PLA and Google in helping our community's job seekers. Grant funding provided through this initiative will allow us to purchase much needed technology to offer digital literacy education on a regular basis."
  One-on-one résumé assistance will take place by appointment from March 9 through March 14. Additional programs include "Advanced Interviewing Techniques" on Tuesday, March 10 at 7 p.m., presented by New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development, and "Power Your Job Search with Google Tools" on Saturday, March 14 at 11 a.m.
 “Libraries have long been America’s gathering place for learning. From learning new digital skills for the workplace, to creating a résumé or growing your business online, people are going to libraries as resources for professional growth now more than ever,” said Nicky Rigg, program manager for Digital Skills outreach at Google. “Grow with Google is excited to support library programs across the country to help ensure that economic opportunity exists for everyone.”
  This program is funded by Libraries Lead with Digital Skills, which was created so that local libraries can combine their own program offerings with Grow with Google training materials to offer community workshops or other activities aimed at empowering small businesses to grow online or assisting job seekers to prepare for and find work.
  The Grow with Google initiative draws on Google’s 20-year history of building products, platforms, and services that help people and businesses grow. Through this initiative, we aim to help everyone across America – those who make up the workforce of today and those who will drive the workforce of tomorrow – access the best of Google’s training and tools to grow their skills, careers, and businesses. Grow With Google has made a commitment to deliver free, in-person workshops for job seekers, small businesses, and library staff in all 50 states. Learn more about the tour and upcoming events at
