FCC Chairman credits libraries’ role in closing digital divide

In a YouTube video, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski thanks the nation’s librarians for their service. He describes the American Library Association as “a vital partner to the FCC in one of our central missions: closing the digital divide and making sure every American can access the opportunities of broadband Internet.” This is one of the most important -- and most enduring -- ways that libraries enrich their communities. Libraries were instrumental in allowing me early access to emerging technology.

Matt Enis filed a report at Library Journal InfoDocket. I credit Jackson County Library Services for bringing my attention to the article and video. The latter is hosted by the American Library Association at its Washington Office YouTube channel.
