Rural Libraries to Receive 1 GB of Broadband Service

Rural Libraries to Receive 1 GB of Broadband Service

Yolo County’s library branches in Esparto, Yolo and Knights Landing will receive an additional gigabyte of broadband service by the end of 2015.

Through Governor Brown and the legislature’s “Lighting Up Libraries” initiative, as well as the State Library’s partnership with the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC), broadband services are being deployed to public libraries across the state.  On behalf of Yolo County, CENIC negotiated with Internet service providers to bring improved, lower cost broadband services to rural libraries within Yolo County at a significantly reduced rate for the next five years.  As a result, one GB of high speed broadband service will be available at Yolo County library branches in Esparto, Yolo and Knights Landing, as well as enhanced bandwidth at the Yolo County Library’s central services facility in Woodland.

The drought is tightening its grip on California agriculture, squeezing about 30 percent more workers and cropland out of production than in 2014, according to the latest drought impact report by the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences.

In 2015, the state’s agricultural economy will lose about $1.84 billion and 10,100 seasonal jobs because of the drought, the report estimated, with the Central Valley hardest hit.

The analysis also forecasts how the industry will fare if the drought persists through 2017... Read More
