E-Gov: Make It Work @ your library
Join us for this free interactive learning experienceHow do you bridge the gap?
• 53% of libraries report that staff do not have the necessary skills to meet patron e-government needs.

Attend and learn how to:
• Use new e-government resources and data to help patrons
