PUEBLO — The Pueblo City-County Library District is continuing to help narrow the digital divide in the county.

The library district distributed 300 internet hotspots to Pueblo School District 60 and Pueblo County School District 70.

The hotspots will be rented out for free for three months. After the three months, it will be judged on a case by case basis if a student can still rent them out.

"It is super rewarding I'm actually personally contacting the families in district 70 to let them know when their hot spots are available and just the joy some parents are expressing is just very rewarding to hear," said Director of User Services Jill Kleven.

This project was made possible through grants from Kiwanis of Pueblo and the Sperry S. and Ella Graber Packard Fund for Colorado.
