Ten Ohio libraries were selected to receive funding from the American Library Association and Grow with Google’s Libraries Lead with Digital Skills initiative. The $1,000 mini-grants will be used to promote digital skills within their communities.
Congratulations to the following libraries:

Libraries will use the funding for activities that focus on helping job seekers find and prepare for work as well as showing small business owners how to grow their businesses online.
In addition to the grants, all of Ohio’s public libraries can access free curriculum and outreach tools through the Grow with Google Partner Program.
Last March, Grow with Google stopped at three Ohio libraries as part of its national tour. Workshops were held at Akron-Summit County Public Library, Columbus Metropolitan Library and Lima Public Library. Learn more about Grow with Google Week in Ohio.
