The Evanston Public Library is conducting a brief Digital Literacy Survey to help assess the community’s computer skills. This data collection is part of a year-long digital literacy initiative to help the Library design and deliver programs that promote computer and technology skills in Evanston. The Library will collect data for the survey until September 30.

The survey can be completed online in English: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6WYD5R8. There is also a Spanish version of the survey: (Tome la encuesta en español aqui: https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/Y7M6JMQ

Print versions of the survey in English and Spanish are available at all three library locations. Library outreach workers and volunteers will distribute the survey at community events and through faith-based organizations. Survey collection will continue through September 30.

“The Library supports all types of literacy including digital literacy, for everyone in our community. Technology lets people connect to ideas, information, opportunities, and to each other. Libraries help navigate the ever-changing technology landscape. This survey will help us establish a baseline for our community so we can shape a path forward to greater skill development,” said Library Director, Karen Danczak Lyons.
