Lighting up libraries: High-speed broadband in California public libraries

from the Sierra Sun Times

“Recognizing the important role libraries play in workforce development and the state’s education system, the Brown administration is bringing 21st Century digital service to more than one-third of California’s 1,112 libraries, beginning July 1. Through an appropriation approved by Governor Brown and lawmakers in the current budget, libraries will be joining the same broadband network linking the University of California, the state university system, community colleges, and a growing number of public school districts.”
