Digital Literacy and Security Cum PLAI-CARLC General Assembly 2018

Accordingly, libraries existed to help create an informed society and advocate digital literacy along with security tips by offering excellent resources necessary for life-long learning and varied literacy programs. The library embraces the social responsibility to offer services that will bridge the cultural, educational, religious, and economical diversity.
