Digital Citizenship for Kids is a four-part series for children ages 5 and up (and their parents) who want to make sure they are being good digital citizens in the online world. Each session will focus on one aspect of digital citizenship:

  • January 14, 4:00 p.m. – Staying Balanced
  • February 11, 4:00 p.m. – Staying Private
  • March 11, 4:00 p.m. – Staying Kind
  • April 8, 4:00 p.m. – Staying Alert

“It is important for children to learn how to stay safe and responsible online, especially with remote learning and other types of activities moving online during the pandemic,” says Youth Services Librarian Katy Henderson. “This series of programs will help kids understand the basics of online etiquette and safety, and get them started down the right path toward becoming good digital citizens.”

Those interested in participating may register for this series here: forms.gle/9m5CP2rTMkwr7egv8. Youth Services staff will send a reminder and a link for the virtual meeting each month.
