Libraries: a bridge across the Digital Divide

According to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one in three Americans do not have access to the Internet in their homes, and many cannot even afford a computer. Libraries -- particularly public libraries -- make the wealth of information available to anyone, regardless of income level, etc.
My favorite fact from this video is "More than 30 million people use libraries every year to further their education." And Internet access is central to those efforts.
