e-Vermont initiatives in Ludlow were spearheaded by representatives from the library, school, public service organizations, town government and local businesses. In one short year, this team succeeded in bringing the following accomplishments to Ludlow:

  • Fifty-two netbook packages – along with weekly training for students and teachers – to ensure that every student in grades 4, 5 and 6 receives a 21st century education;
  • Equipment and set-up to improve Fletcher Memorial Library services and to help more community members and visitors access the Internet, find social services and jobs, and connect to research and educational opportunities (Five iPads, 2 D-Link Wi-Fi routers and 3 hours of set-up service);
  • Four workshops on the topics of Basic Computer Skills, Social Media for Beginners, Web-Based Communication Tools and Evaluating Information on the Web conducted by Vermont State Colleges;
  • Three Canon HF M32 64GB Camcorder Kits to support LPCTV’s efforts to provide multi-media resources to a wide variety of municipal and nonprofit organizations as well as individuals in the community;
  • Creation of Wireless Ludlow, a free, public Wi-Fi zone for visitors, tourists and others to access the Internet; and a network portal template;
  • Read about many other accomplishments in the Ludlow Re-Cap (pdf).
