Libraries don’t just have books anymore; they also have broadband! Faster Internet access is essential to a thriving community and integral to a library’s future. Learn all about "Libraries Connecting Texas" (LCT), a new TSLAC funding opportunity to support libraries in getting faster speeds. With LCT, you can work with the talented, nationally-renowned consulting firm, E-rate Central, as they act as your personal coach for two years, helping your library get up to a 90% discount on Internet costs via E-rate, the federal discount program set up specifically for libraries! In addition, the Texas State Library will pay for the remaining non-discounted portion of an upgrade for the first whole year. It’s an incredible opportunity and not one to pass up with only 100 libraries to be accepted. Join us for a live webinar with the E-rate Central team to get the scoop about E-rate and the “Libraries Connecting Texas” program. Find out how your library can stay up to speed!
The webinar is on December 12, 2017, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. CDT. For more information, contact Library Development and Networking Division. See the LDN webinar calendar page for a listing of all webinars and for a link to register.
