Closing the Digital Divide in Your Community #MNBroadband Conference

Everyone loves libraries. Even in the age of Google libraries are nowhere near obsolete. They are adapting services, programs and resources to serve a 21st century audience. Librarians understand technology and provide access to the internet, on- and off-site computers and other devices, like mobile hotspots.

Learn how Libraries without Borders is teaming with public libraries across Minnesota to extend technology-based library services to community sites, like laundromats and manufactured housing communities.
