The Association of Public Television Stations (APTS) and the American Library Association (ALA) will work together to launch a grassroots outreach effort to educate the public about the digital television transition.

According to the ALA, libraries may work with local public TV stations to demonstrate DTV converter boxes. This grassroots outreach will complement public television’s ongoing consumer education campaign efforts, which include using on-air segments, stations’ printed program guides, Web sites and special mailings.
