As summer winds down, the Avoid the 8 – Yolo County DUI Task Force is ramping up its enforcement efforts as part of a national crackdown on drunk driving.

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.
