Deadly Digital Communities

State Library of Queensland is committed to closing the digital divide, ensuring all Queenslanders access to the benefits of the digital economy.  

The Deadly Digital Communities (DDC) project brings together State Library, participating local government public library services and First Nation communities, to deliver place-based, co-designed digital programs in communities across Queensland.  

This partnership supports and strengthens participating council library services as digital hubs and places where First Nations people can join digital programs of local interest. These hubs strengthen social connection, enable lifelong learning, and nurture memory keeping in remote communities.  

The DDC program will be delivered through Cairns, Mareeba, Paroo, and Townsville Council library services. 

State Library will develop a community of practice​ where public libraries and communities can share expertise, knowledge, programs, and information. An online DDC toolkit will make projects and resources available to the broader public library and IKC network across Queensland. 

The DDC project is funded through the Queensland Government’s Our Thriving Digital Future: Queensland’s Digital Economy Strategy 2023-2026.
