Featuring:

Community-wide high-speed connectivity is the next frontier in digital access and equity.  In cities where this revolutionary capacity is emerging, leaders and civic institutions are working together to test innovations that will expand opportunity for people of all ages, particular in the domains of learning, economic and workforce development.) 

This webinar features leaders of the Chattanooga and Kansas City Public Libraries sharing their vision, plans and work underway to explore this question:  how can a gig library in a gig city leverage that network to benefit the community?  Listeners will hear about each library’s plans to expand services both within and beyond the library, including their work to lead community partnerships.
