The New York Library Association (NYLA) is administering an equipment grant program to distribute wireless routers to libraries in need of equipment.

NYLA seeks to identify twenty-five (25) libraries across the state in need of hardware (or upgrades) to better share their connectivity with their patrons via wireless routers.

Priority will be given to libraries that are users of Spectrum internet services, but is not a requirement of eligibility.

This project is funded by the Spectrum NYS Broadband Access and Learning Grant.

The brief 12 question application must be completed online and submitted by Friday, December 7.

Questions can be submitted to Jeremy Johannesen, NYLA Director, at director@nyla.org
