“Hotspot at Home” Program

“Hotspot at Home” Program

Chicago PL is trying to get a grant to fund a program whereby patrons in low-income communities can loan out an internet hotspot.

I can’t imagine how they’ll be able to coordinate such an effort. I also wonder if they’ll have some sort of income contingency, or a “hold list” with a limit to how many times a family can check it out each year. But what a terrific way to really reach out to serve information needs. Makes my outreach efforts pale in comparison.
