Print Literacy is the ability to read and write at a level that would enable an individual to meet daily living needs. Literacy is a continuum from basic reading and writing skills all the way up to various technical literacies. Print literacy is what we think of typically when we think of “literacy.”
Simply put, digital literacy describes a person’s ability to perform tasks effectively in a digital environment. This includes:
- The ability to use digital technology, communication tools or networks to locate, evaluate, use and create information.
- The ability to understand and use information in multiple formats from a wide range of sources when it is presented via computers.
- The ability to read and interpret media, to reproduce data and images through digital manipulation, and to evaluate and apply new knowledge gained from digital environments.
The Bookmobile operates as a lending library. We are not a part of the Bartow County Library System. We carry a rotating inventory of approximately 1,500 books inside the Bookmobile. Half of those are books for children and teens, and the other half is for adults. We issue a Bookmobile Library Card to anyone wanting to borrow books from the mobile library. We ask that you bring those books back when you finish reading them. We don’t have hard due dates, and we don’t charge fines or fees. Everything is completely free.
