Digital technology is continually developing, and libraries must consult their communities to co-design diverse digital literacy programs that meet their needs. Digital literacy covers not just beginners’ computer classes, but also a range of formats and topics that enable social engagement, creativity, lifelong learning, and exploration and enjoyment of technology across all ages. This paper discusses methods of consulting patrons, and describes different programs to meet digital literacy learning needs, from one-on-one sessions and beginners’ computer classes for adults, to code clubs for kids.
