KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Missouri, Public Library has taken one more step toward bridging the digital divide.

The library announced on Wednesday that it now has four mobile device labs that will be taken to community events “lacking the sufficient technology resources,” according to a news release.

Each lab will consist of 55 Microsoft Surface Go Tablets and is equipped with WiFi and “4G technology,” the release stated. They can be used for helping with financial literacy, health and wellness, legal services and job and career searches.

A grant from the Missouri State Library LSTA/CARES Act funded the labs.

Those interested in using one of the mobile device labs should email mobileservices@kclibrary.org for more information.
