The Walnut Hill zip code of 19139 is listed under the Federal Broadband Opportunities Program grant as one of the areas in Philadelphia most in need of digital literacy training.

The needs present in this zip code, along with those of 24 other zip codes throughout the city, are the impetus behind the creation of the Techmobile–a new way to reach residents who for a variety of reasons have not accessed the resources available at branch libraries in Philadelphia.

The Federal Broadband Technologies Opportunities grant has provided the Free Library with the funds needed to create the Techmobile and expand the points of entry available to Philadelphia residents.

The Techmobile was launched April 12 in a ribbon-cutting ceremony overseen by Mayor Nutter, Congressman Fattah and Free Library President Siobhan Reardon.
