Learning at home: literacy support through libraries

Many public libraries throughout the state have CIPA compliant equipment such as wi-fi hotspots, ChromeBooks and Laptops available for library patrons to borrow.  Libraries are adding additional eReaders to their collections with increased access to electronic books that often meet many school’s curriculum needs.  In addition, some are boosting Wi-Fi connectivity in library parking lots and placing devices at food banks, low income apartment buildings, community centers, and book mobiles.
