Townhall meeting Feb. 23 in Hillsboro

A townhall meeting to discuss broadband Internet access will be from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Hillsboro City Building, 118 E. Grand. A light supper will also be served, followed by the discussion starting at 6:30 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the North Central Kansas Libraries System, a 12-county system of cooperating libraries, and the Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy of Kansas State University.

According to Carol Barta at NCKL, libraries help overcome access gaps by providing computers and broadband connections to the public, but increasing demand and changes in funding for library broadband requires a community response.

Broadband Internet access increases the capacity of Kansas communities to build on their economic base and strengthen tax revenues, yet many citizens of our state are still underserved, Barta said.
