Excerpt: "Over the last year, school and library efforts to continue serving students and patrons at their homes have been nothing short of inspiring. Now that the FCC has made over $7 billion available to schools and libraries for this very purpose, we can’t wait to see Emergency Connectivity Fund applicants develop even more innovative ways to lessen the digital divide. For those willing and able to seize this opportunity, the first step is to review the Emergency Connectivity Fund application process and get ready to apply before the application window closes on August 13."
