Mobile Hotspots for Circulation

Through this proposed project, the Nevada County Community Library will purchase 47 mobile hotspots and lend them to library cardholders for at-home use. Borrowers will also receive information about authoritative online health resources, such as PubMed, MedlinePlus, ClinicalTrials.gov, free NNLM online classes, the All of Us Research Program and Nevada County’s Public Health website. This project will help to bridge the digital divide experienced by Nevada County residents who cannot afford traditional internet access at home or for whom home internet service is simply not available, thereby contributing to equal access to health information.
