News: The Gates Foundation and Global Libraries Funding

9/5/14 – The Gates Foundation and Global Libraries Funding (article)

Sarah P’s comments:  I missed this announcement when it came out in May…that the foundation will no longer be funding the Global Libraries initiative as of 2015.  How very sad, and just when it seemed public libraries would develop and have some impact in countries that desperately need the resources not to mention a way to have access to technology and open information.  Let’s hope someone else will step into the arena.
