Online Snare-Cyber Smart Project

Online Snare-Cyber Smart Project

Our goal is to educate and inform Northern Sandhills area residents about ways to stay protected when using smart phones, using social media platforms and while using the internet. We have many goals and more information will be coming soon. Please like and follow our social media pages to stay connected to upcoming events and for further information.

The Online Snare-Cyber Smart project is a collaborative effort with Valentine Police Department, Cherry County Sheriff’s Office and Valentine Public Library to increase the sharing of information regarding cyber security and raise awareness to decrease victimization. Use hashtags: #onlinesnarecybersmart #vplcares

“Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).”
