Jönköping City Library had the pleasure to participate for the second consecutive
year at the Get Online Week campaign.
Our focus this time was to present useful online self-service open 24/7 and e-society
facilities. Our aim was also to show the enjoyable side of Internet for both pleasure
In cooperation with important institutions from the e-service society and public
services the program at Jönköping City Library consisted of guidance on how to use
digital services to simplify every day life and to encourage people to discover the
advantages of e-service facilities.
The four institutions that participated were the Swedish Social Insurance Agency,
Jönköping County Council, the Municipality of Jönköping and the bank
SEB. The Jönköping County Council website was at the end of 2011 awarded a prize
as the best website of public services.
The study organisation NBV presented elementary lessons on how to use computers
and Internet for beginners.
Finally, the last day of the four day program the librarians at Jönköping City Library
demonstrated how to use Twitter, Facebook, E-book Reader, digital maps and how to
download digital books. Especially appreciated were several of the computer games
mainly free of charge for adults - the Swedish knowledge competition game
Kunskapsjakten, Bejeweled and other free online games from the PopCap Games
website and also the online version of Battlefield, the famous Swedish video game.
The national Swedish Radio visited us the last day and broadcasted interviews
with some of the participants.
