Emergency Broadband Benefit

The Emergency Broadband Benefit is an FCC program to help families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and so much more.

As of May 12, 2021, eligible households will be able to enroll in the Program to receive a monthly discount off the cost of broadband service from an approved provider. Eligible households can enroll through an approved provider or by visiting https://getemergencybroadband.org.

“Families in every corner of the country have been struggling to get online throughout this pandemic. For those families, we now say help is around the corner. I’m proud of the work we’ve done as an agency to get this program off the ground in record time,” said Rosenworcel.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program will provide eligible households with discounts of up to $50 a month for broadband service, and up to $75 a month if the household is on Tribal lands. It also will provide a one-time discount of up to $100 on a computer or tablet for eligible households. Under the law, the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is open to households that participate in an existing low-income or pandemic relief program offered by a broadband provider; Lifeline subscribers, including those that are on Medicaid or accept SNAP benefits; households with kids receiving free and reduced-price lunch or school breakfast; Pell grant recipients; and those who have lost jobs and seen their income reduced in the last year.

Discover Washington State

Would you like to explore Washington's State Parks?

Back by popular demand, the Check Out Washington program allows library card holders to check out free Discover Passes for a week at a time. Check out your pass and head for a state-managed recreation site.

Reardan Library has two Discover Passes that may be checked out. A Discover Pass usually sells for $30 for year-long access. These passes allow for motor vehicle access to lands managed by:

Washington State Parks

Washington State Department of Natural Resources

Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife

According to About the Pass | Discover Pass, WA - Official Websitethe Discover Pass offers you access to millions of acres of state recreation lands in Washington, including:

Tag Reardan Memorial Library, the Washington State Library (@WashingtonStateLibrary) and Washington State Parks (@WashingtonStateParks) in your posts about your adventures with the loaner pass.

Orgs you can tag in this post:
@WashingtonStateLibrary
@WashDNR
@WashingtonFishWildlife
@WashingtonStateParksFoundation

The Discover Pass is a motor vehicle permit only. You do not need the pass to access state recreation lands by boat or by non-motorized means (foot, horse, bicycle, etc.). Motor vehicles used to transport recreation equipment, such as vehicles pulling horse or boat trailers, must display the pass. However, the trailers being towed that are carrying the equipment do not need a Discover Pass. Boaters will still need to pay for such services as moorage and waste-pumping.

If you just want to drive through state recreation lands managed by DNR and WDFW and you do not leave your vehicle, you do not need a pass.
