American Libraries Magazine: New PLA Survey Highlights Role of Libraries in Digital Equity

American Libraries Magazine: New PLA Survey Highlights Role of Libraries in Digital Equity. “Survey data, captured for the first time, shows that more than half of public libraries report circulating technology (for example, hotspots, laptops, and tablets) for patron use offsite. A similar percentage provided streaming public programs, such as storytimes and author events, in the previous 12 months, as well as diverse digital content, resources, and training. With public Wi-Fi now ubiquitous, many libraries also offered 24/7 internet access by leaving on or extending their Wi-Fi signal so that visitors can log on to the web in and outside of buildings.”
