Dr. Inouye, Director of ALA’s Office of Info Tech, discusses reasons why libraries need high-capacity broadband access.  He is gratified to see support of the President’s ConnectED initiative.  He then discusses 2 programs proposed by the ALA:  1) ConnectED and FINAL.  If you agree, he urges you to speak out to the FCC in favor of these programs.  However, I could be wrong but the comment period seems to have been closed on 9/16/13 (& replies by 10/16) :!documentDetail;D=FCC-2013-0315-0001
