Our digital direction
We're aiming to achieve four outcomes for the Kāpiti community through our digital inclusion work. These were set up by our former digital inclusion specialist, Dr Simon Laing.
We want to provide the Kāpiti community with access to the world of information using the latest digital technologies.
We’d like the Kāpiti community to be excited about connecting and engaging with the digital world.
We want to help make sure the Kāpiti community has the necessary capabilities to act within the digital world in a safe, productive and secure way.
Our aim is for Kāpiti libraries to be trusted by and engaged with our communities to make learning and the use of digital technology possible and accessible.
