Libraries are an important onramp for technology. They're known for making books accessible and have been pioneers in database access, but many branches seem to understand that they have a vital cultural role to play, especially when it comes to technology access. Most people in American society presume such access is ubiquitous, even though a substantial percentage of the world population lacks access.
