What Could Schools and Libraries do with $7 Billion? (SHLB Coalition)
In a groundbreaking move, Congress is providing $7 billion in new funding to help schools and libraries support remote learning by extending their broadband connections off-campus. The opportunity formally opens a new door to exciting possibilities for how schools and libraries serve their communities. As these anchors prepare their applications for this funding, what can they learn from those that have already traveled this road? On our next webinar, SHLB will explore “to and through” case studies that schools and libraries can model to close the digital divide for their students and patrons.
