EveryoneOn is a national ad campaign designed to help increase the visibility of library systems as places for digital learning. Update or add your library’s information in the EveryoneOn Training Site Database and you can drive traffic to your facility and website.
The goal is to let the public know where they can find free computer and internet training classes in their area, as well as which locations offer free Wi-Fi. The public can then access the information by calling 1-855-EVRY1ON, texting CONNECT to 30364, or by visiting EveryoneOn.org and utilizing the zip code search tool.
All of West Virginia’s public libraries offer public access computers and Internet access, providing a location for our citizens to obtain job information and education opportunities that they wouldn’t have access to otherwise. Help bridge the growing digital literacy gap by updating your information. Don’t forget to include the LearningExpress computer training resources provided through www.WVInfoDepot.org.

What you need to know:
There is no obligation to do a special event for the ad campaign. The West Virginia Library Commission is requesting that you update your library’s information to make it easier for the general public to find free computer and internet training classes and free Wi-Fi locations in their area in an effort to improve digital literacy. Just providing access to a computer and the internet goes a long way. Get the word out.
Encourage your patrons to use the learning tools on EveryoneOn.org, such as Get to Know your Computer and Internet Basics.
Share your digital literacy success stories on the EveryoneOn Facebook and Twitter pages. Make it fun. Make it simple. Just get EveryoneOn.
