The American Library Association (ALA) recently announced that the Round Rock Public Library was selected to receive a $2,000 grant to participate in Libraries Lead with Digital Skills, an initiative of ALA and the Public Library Association (PLA), sponsored by Grow With Google, the tech company’s economic opportunity initiative. We will be utilizing this grant to continue our workshops for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
“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.”
Join us for our next free virtual business workshop, Everything You Need to Know about Google My Business, presented by Jon Bean and SCORE Austin, Tuesday, June 16, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
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 virtual community workshops or other activities aimed at empowering small businesses to grow online or assisting job seekers to prepare for and find work.
