Need funding? Get your library on E-rate for up to 90% Internet discounts

E-rate is THE program for public libraries to get funding for technology.  Billions of dollars are put aside each year by the FCC for accredited public libraries to pay for faster Internet to their libraries. Not only does this mean happier patrons, it frees up funds so libraries can pay for other great things.

And NOW is the perfect time to get started. For the next application cycle (for services starting in July 2019), you can get E-rate help from hired experts at E-rate Central entirely for free.

They’ll make the application process much easier and help ensure you submit the forms correctly and meet the deadlines.  It’s part of a special program that TSLAC provides called Libraries Connecting Texas (LCT).

We had tremendous success with LCT last year:  TSLAC helped 84 Texas libraries increase their bandwidth by an average of 927 percent.

Contact TSLAC now to get started: hstokes@tsl.texas.gov.  But hurry: time’s running out to participate!
