Does this statement accurately depict your community?
“The lack of high speed broadband availability or broadband that is too slow or too costly is crippling Kansas communities.”
Your library is not alone in its need for higher speed broadband. Kansas libraries are the voice of need in their communities.
How can your voice be heard?
Attend one-day training in your Regional Library System.
• a broadband advocacy message for your community;
• an action plan for expanding and sustaining high speed broadband access in your community; and
• a list of partners who can help you be successful.
There is no charge for this single-day training, underwritten by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and delivered by the State Library of Kansas staff.
All trainings are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. including a free lunch. Each training session will have a drawing for participants; prizes are a FLip video camera and a computer headset.
