On June 12th the Macon County Public Library hosted the 1st region-wide broadband information sharing meeting.

Fifty-five adults were in attendance; 15 were invitees representing regional and county agencies, community clubs, and Internet service providers who had information (mostly developments in the last six months) re: bringing affordable broadband to our region. The event was live-streamed on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MaconCoPL/videos), and as of the end of July there have been 324 views of the video.

Twenty-five attendees signed up to receive informational links via email regarding broadband. To receive the informational links, please send an email to Charles Diede (cdiede@fotanalib.org). Both invitees and the public expressed appreciation for the Library's role in hosting the event.

A set of web pages (http://fontanalib.libguides.com/broadband) have been created by the FRL connectivity focus team (Charles Diede, Deb Lawley, and John Tyndall) to assist you with research resources and subject information!

Stay tuned! A follow-up event is being planned for the end of January/early February 2018 and will be hosted at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.
