On Monday, May 7th from 6:00pm-7:30pm Brooks Memorial Library will host Vermont-based, digital educator and librarian, Jessamyn West, for a discussion on Digital Privacy on the Main Floor of the library. Jessamyn West is a nationally recognized leader, working on raising awareness and educating the public about technology and the digital divide, while also advocating for libraries to play an increased role in technology education for their patrons.
This digital privacy session will focus on learning some skills from Jessamyn West’s “Digital Privacy Toolkit” to better protect your online information, whether you want to find out how make sure your online banking is safe to how to prevent certain social media sites from aggregating data about you online.
There will be a presentation by West on these topics, and an opportunity to ask questions at the end. This event is in conjunction with the American Library Association’s (ALA) Digital Privacy Week, running May 1st-May 7th, which aims to increase awareness about the importance of digital privacy and safety to citizens throughout the country.
