I have to give a nod to my friend Kevin Featherly for getting the details on St Paul Library’s Mobile Workplace Project. The good news is that they recently received a $300,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
They are going to build a mobile computer lab. It’s a genius idea that I’ve heard before – but not seen implemented. The idea is to teach people to use computers and use them to help find jobs – especially to non-native English speakers. Can’t wait to see it!
