Chicago Public Library awarded for Wi-Fi program

“The Chicago Public Library has been awarded $400,000 by the Knight Foundation for its initiative to expand Internet access throughout the community. The award is part of the Knight News Challenge, a competition launched in February that promotes projects committed to open Internet. Knight collaborated with Ford Foundation and Mozilla to create the event. The library’s program, called Internet to Go, will test Wi-Fi hotspot lending in six neighborhood libraries. These libraries will loan devices for three weeks at a time and provide digital literacy services.” (via Chicago Tribune)
