ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV) - St. Louis County is offering tablets to seniors so they can access technology and stay connected to loved ones.

Senior citizens who live in St. Louis County can apply to receive a GrandPad tablet for one year starting Wednesday. It is part of a program that started when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the St. Louis area. The tablets have a built-in 4G LTE service that allows access to email, make calls, participate in video calls, take, send and receive photos and more, county officials tell News 4.

The library will be giving away 1,500 internet-ready tablets. Click here for more information.
