2021 ConnectHomeUSA - Working with Libraries: Best Practices and Case Study Examples


December 14, 2021 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST



Libraries play a critical role in providing key services and programs to communities across the United States, often acting as anchor institutions and bringing crucial resources to low-income residents. Libraries also have a long history of partnering with Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and ConnectHomeUSA communities to provide access to broadband and education resources.

In this webinar, representatives from Libraries Without Borders US (LWB US) highlighted relevant projects from across the country, sharing best practice tips on how to engage and work with public libraries and other stakeholders and organizations. LWB US is a non-profit organization that transforms underused spaces into connected learning places, delivering access to information, technology, and cultural resources, with a particular emphasis on underserved communities.

This webinar is part of an ongoing series that aims to help ConnectHomeUSA communities, other PHAs, and tribes achieve their goals in connecting households to affordable broadband service, devices, and digital literacy training. View all webinars in the ConnectHomeUSA Webinar Series.
