Seattle Public Library Announces Internet Lending Program
Today the Seattle Public Library announced it is launching an Internet lending program. Starting today, residents with a Library card can reserve a mobile Wi-Fi device to give them broadband access wherever they need it. Google provided a grant making the new program possible.
According to a press release from Google and The Seattle Public Library, more than 90,000 Seattle residents lack internet access at home. The program will aim to help the underserved in the city with the hopes of providing an internet connection that will help children succeed in school while providing adults with critical information on health, employment and education.
