Chapel Hill, Town Of (INC) (Chapel Hill Public Library)

Chapel Hill's "Whenever, Wherever, Whyever: Expanding Technology Access" program will address the community's ongoing need for public computing services and the challenges of providing these services during a pandemic. Even in a growing college town such as Chapel Hill, many residents do not have regular, reliable access to computers and internet in their households. This initiative will focus on patrons who do not have sufficient computer and internet access at home, including job seekers, low-income residents, and historically marginalized populations. The library will bring computers, Wi-Fi, and assistance directly to the community by creating a robust laptop lending program, paired with increased Wi-Fi at public facilities and in communities of need.
