Wi-Fi Hotspot Lending Pilot Project

BACKGROUNDER: Wi-Fi Hotspot Lending Pilot Project at London Public Library

Public libraries exist to champion universal access to information. This commitment to social equality drives every program presented, every book purchased, and every space offered by public libraries. And this objective is no less important in the age of the Internet. In keeping with their historical mandate of providing equal access to information for all people, public libraries everywhere are looking for ways to bridge the digital divide.

London Public Library (LPL) has been designing programs and services to address social and economic barriers to digital information for many years. Such initiatives include free public internet access and wifi in all branch locations, providing a wide range of instructional classes, and one-on-one assistance with technology and internet use. All of these efforts reflect LPL’s core values of access and inclusion.
