I took a shift at the reference desk one cold morning last week. NIU is done and the public school students were in school. Who came to the reference desk– a woman asking for medical information before she went to the doctor, questions about the formatting in Word, questions about logging onto the Internet, questions about income tax forms, questions about Inter Library Loan. All of these people did not have access to the Internet at home. I wonder how many households in DeKalb do not have broadband access.
