Technology at PCPL

The Putnam County Public Library endeavors to be a community leader in helping to close the digital divide by being a central place for patrons to access tools and information while developing essential digital literacy skills.  We provide knowledgeable and trained staff who curate electronic resources, train and guide patrons in their use, and educate and stimulate the public as to the role of technology in their lives. We are committed to building and maintaining a robust technology program that includes equitable access to information and content creation tools as well as providing an engaging and supportive environment in which to explore and experiment with new technologies.
