About City of Johannesburg Public Libraries

City of Johannesburg public libraries introduced eLearning services to contribute to creating a Smart city and for digital inclusion of all citizens. Recently we partnered with Google (SA) for their Digital skills for Africa program and ours is a unique collaboration because we provide the community with access to elearning Classrooms that are both mobile and in libraries so they can do the Google Digital skills courses for free. On the 25th Jabavu Library (one of our branches) will be hosting a group of youth between 18-24 and introducing them to the elearning platform and the courses they can do for free using free Google sponsored Wifi. This is one of many group sessions to come. This group will be introduced to careers in the Digital space and how to complete a course online.
