This conference will look at the role school libraries can and do play in ensuring digital equity for all students, including how they partner with the school community, parents and caregivers, and their local public library to bridge the digital equity divide. Gain skills, ideas, and support towards providing equitable digital access to all students. Conference registrants will have access to all live sessions as well as access to all session recordings.
