Bridging the Digital Divide
Connectivity and computer access are limited in downtown Lewiston, even as the Internet has become an essential gateway to education, jobs, goods, services, and social networks. Downtown Lewiston has two well-equipped computer labs, one at the Lewiston Public Library and Lewiston Adult Education’s computer lab at the B Street Community Center. Drawing on student expertise from the colleges, DEC is staffing these labs, providing one-on-one mentoring and offering skill-building workshops. Staff assist residents with tasks such as completing on-line job applications, conducting job searches, using the Internet to access essential information and services, and developing their computer skills. One or both of the labs is open daily M-F.
Hours vary, so please visit our “Contact Us” page for more information.
