Google is coming to the downtown Main Library as part of the tech company’s ‘Grow with Google’ initiative. ‘Grow with Google’ aims to help create economic opportunity in communities across the United States by helping people grow their skills, careers, and businesses. To further this mission, they’ll be hosting day-long digital skills workshops at the downtown Main Library and providing free training, tools, and expertise for North Dakotans.
