The Keith School Museum commemorates an invaluable school for black children in the depths of the Jim Crow era. And now it’s also serving as an important asset to share computer and wifi resources with the surrounding Cainhoy Peninsula.

“The Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce recently celebrated the opening of its first community resource hub in the county, located at the Keith School Museum off Clements Ferry Road.

The initiative aims to bridge the digital divide by providing residents with access to computer workspaces, free Wi-Fi, and online services. The hub is equipped with webcam computers, printers, eight Chromebooks, and desks for visitors to use.

“To be able to bring these facilities to these communities, it’s life-changing,” said Todd Buddin, president of the Berkeley Chamber.

The hub offers access to telehealth services, online education, substance abuse resources, and training on how to use the devices for those with less technical proficiency.” To read the entire Daniel Island News article CLICK HERE.
