Yarra Plenty Regional Library (YPRL), with its partner organisations the City of Whittlesea and Whittlesea University of the Third Age (U3A), has been funded to establish a Digital Hub at the Mill Park Branch Library in South Morang, to provide residents with training in the digital literacy skills necessary for participation in the National Broadband Network (NBN)-enabled digital economy. This paper presents results from a research project designed to explore the impact of the Mill Park Digital Hub in its first year of operation, focusing on the role of public libraries in both engaging and educating local communities.
