As a public library, one of our fundamental values is to help our patrons be informed and engaged in our dynamic society.
The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) repealed “net neutrality” rules that regulated businesses that connect consumers to the internet, which was a highly controversial decision because of its potential to provide unequal access to internet content.
We hope you will find these resources useful to learn more about the issus. Our librarians are always ready to connect our patrons and our community with vetted sources for learning more.
Opposing Viewpoints is a robust library resource that can be accessed with your PPL card. This online tool covers today’s most important social issues, including Net Neutrality. These informed, differing views present various sides of the issue and help researchers and information seekers develop the confidence to draw their own valid conclusions.
