High-Speed Broadband in California Public Libraries:
A Project of the California State Library, Califa, and CENIC

Work is underway to bring high-speed broadband to all of California’s public libraries by connecting them to the California Research & Education Network (CalREN), a high-capacity 8,000-mile fiber-optic-based network designed to meet the unique requirements of over 20 million users, including the vast majority of K-20 students together with educators, researchers, and others working in California’s vital public-serving institutions. This network is operated by the Corporation for education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC), a non-profit California corporation that connects California to the world—advancing education and research statewide by providing the world-class network essential for innovation, collaboration, and economic growth.
