At a recent Child Support Super Saturday event at the South Region Live Well Center in National City, San Diego County Library and Child Support Services teamed up to provide Chromebooks and mobile hotspots to families for one year.
Nearly 200 parents and more than 300 children preregistered for the devices and 303 were distributed at the event. Additional Chromebooks and hotspots were reserved for those who were unable to attend. The Chromebooks and hotspots were paid for as part of a $4.3 million federal grant.
Beyond efforts to promote digital inclusion, Child Support Services was open to provide child support services to customers to accommodate those who may not be able to visit during regular business hours.
County Library staff also provided the community attendees information about library services, such as the free Library High School Diploma Program and free online tutoring.
For more information on how to obtain a device, the San Diego County Library branches have laptop checkouts and free internet access through mobile hotspots.
