Kansas Libraries and the Internet

According to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, nearly one of every four Kansas households lack Internet access. Kansas public libraries helped to close this gap and equalize access by providing 6,441,364 connections to the Internet in 2008.

Kansas public libraries had 11.53 Internet terminals per 10,000 population in 2007, more than 50 percent greater than the national average of 7.02, and more than the average in neighboring states of 8.73 per 10,000 population.
