The following programs for adults will be held during the month of January at Yolo County’s Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library, located at 315 E. 14th Street in Davis:

Rural Libraries Receiving Increased Broadband Service

Rural Libraries Receiving Increased Broadband Service

This past November, Yolo County’s library branches in Esparto, Knights Landing and Yolo increased broadband service to one gigabyte, thus increasing the Internet speed at these locations.

 

The Yolo County Library obtained funds for these improvements through the State Library’s partnership with the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).  CENIC, along with Governor Brown and the legislature’s “Lighting Up Libraries” initiative, has allowed for the deployment of improved, lower cost broadband services to public libraries across the state, now including rural libraries within Yolo County.

 

By supporting the critical and long-term connectivity needs of Yolo County’s residents, users will be able to more easily access the Internet to job search, find local government or healthcare resources and engage in online education.
