Could you imagine not having access to the internet?
The COVID pandemic has clearly shown us that having access to the internet is not a luxury or convenience but a service essential to the quality of our lives. As the internet continues to replace many of the more traditional aspects of our everyday lives, like virtual learning for kids, accessing government or essential health services, or staying connected with loved ones, people who cannot afford internet access are disadvantaged. Access to the internet shouldn’t be a privilege.
Each Wi-Fi device costs $150.00 to purchase, and the monthly subscription for unlimited connectivity costs $50.00 per device.
Join the global giving movement, and mark your calendar for #GivingTuesdayCA happening Tuesday, November 30! You can help those who can’t afford the internet and bridge the digital divide by supporting our Wi-Fi hotspot lending program, donate to Oshawa Public Libraries here.
