In January 2021, the American Library Association’s (ALA) Council passed a resolution declaring support for broadband as a human right. Yet the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reports that ­approximately 19 million Americans lack broadband access, and “even in areas where broadband is available, approximately 100 million Americans still do not subscribe.” According to the Public Library Association’s (PLA) 2020 Public Library Technology Survey, released in September 2021, only half of all libraries provide some type of technology for use outside the library.
