America’s libraries recognized by FCC for digital equity

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Geoffrey Starks has named “America’s libraries” as an honoree of the inaugural Digital Opportunity Equity Recognition (DOER) Program. “Even as library doors had to close and staff had to consider everyone’s health and safety, libraries responded quickly and with creativity to keep their communities connected as we’ve all pivoted to learning, working, seeking healthcare, and many day-to-day tasks online,” said Michelle Jeske, president of PLA, whose survey and device distribution project (supported by Microsoft) was cited in the DOER award.
