- Concrete Examples
When the pandemic struck, the world moved online. This switch left many people behind and particularly hurt those who lack internet access, most notably the poor. Now, as pandemic rules relax, libraries are seeking to close the digital divide and offer more people the lifeline of online connection. Writing in The Atlantic, Deborah Fallows reveals the changing role of libraries amid technological change. She includes interactive maps exploring connections between neighborhood income levels and computer usage that illuminate libraries’ vital contribution to their communities.
