Library Awarded Grant for Broadband Equity Assistance

We’re happy to announce that Adams County Public Library has been selected as a 2024 grant recipient of the Edge of Appalachia – Adams County Fund of the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO) in partnership with The Nature Conservancy. We are pleased to share that our project Broadband Equity Assistance in Adams County project has been funded in the amount of $21,672. This grant will enable the library to add 60 additional WiFi hotspots for lending to the community for the next year!   

Hotspots at Adams County Public Library are available for a two-week checkout and provide valuable access to the digital world for those who may not have reliable internet connections at home. By making hotspots available for checkout, the library aims to bridge the digital divide and help everyone in the community with access to vital online resources.

Due to the limited number of hotspots, we recommend getting on the waiting list as soon as possible, as they are in high demand. Also, remember that we have brand new PCs, laptops, and Wi-Fi, with a fast and reliable high-speed internet connection at each library location!
