Congrats to Hannah Buckland, MN Office of Broadband Development’s New Digital Equity Lead

The Office of Broadband Development reports…

 OBD is excited to announce that we have a new staff person joining our team to lead the state’s digital equity efforts. Hannah Buckland is coming to us from the Minnesota Department of Education where she is a State Library Program Specialist responsible for administering several of MDE’s grant programs for libraries. Hannah has also served as Director of Library Services at Leech Lake Tribal College, worked on the 2020 census to ensure libraries were prepared to assist patrons in completing the online census form, and was an appointed member of the Dayton Administration Governor’s Task Force on Broadband. After completing undergraduate and graduate degrees at Knox College (Galesburg, Ill.) and University of Pittsburgh, Hannah came to Minnesota for the Leech Lake Tribal College job and has put down roots by purchasing a home in St. Paul. You might see her cat, Lentil, on Zoom calls. In her free time, Hannah likes to travel across the country to hike and camp. Welcome, Hannah!

Hannah is an excellent selection. She has experience on the frontlines and in the planning seat. And a librarian is always a good choice!
