Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities

Broadband access is expanding to communities across the state of Nebraska through 140 local libraries.

The project is the result of a U.S. Department of Commerce grant to the Library Commission to fund Nebraska's public computer center project, Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities. In addition to the grant from the federal government, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is providing matching funds. The final report highlights the project, Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities.

Nebraska Library Internet Usage

The Nebraska Library Commission works with community libraries to gauge and track Internet usage through library computers.  Reports reflect growing access through Nebraska libraries.  In addition, Nebraska results of library Internet access are very strong when compared to national results.  See details in the Public Library Funding & Technology Access Survey.
