The Louisville Veterans Center will be hosting an outreach program at the Main Library twice a month beginning Tuesday, January 15. The program is focused on combat veterans and discussions of issues that impact veterans and their families. One of the newest benchmarks for public libraries to achieve concerns knowledge about digital media. Personal device ownership and usage is growing rapidly and we are facing the challenge of how to fully provision, manage and secure mobile devices in our work environment. Libraries must have sufficient staff with technology expertise to help patrons achieve their goals.
