Foley Public Library in Alabama will address its community’s growing need for internet access, remote learning resources, and digital services by doubling their current inventory of hotspots for loan and offering more e-books and other digital content. The library weathered the early effects of the pandemic then served as a community recovery site following Hurricane Sally, which made landfall in September 2020 just miles away. With a hotspot waiting list of over 50 people, the library will purchase an additional 15 devices to help expand internet access to more families. To serve the rising demand for digital content, the library will also invest in e-books, audiobooks, movies, and other resources.
