Gates Foundation to spend $57M in giving overseas libraries Internet access

The Gates Foundation announced recently that they will spend $57 million on overseas libraries. Specifically, it will go to improve Internet access in libraries in Poland, Romania, and Vietnam.

Call me greedy, but I’d rather see the monies spent in the US. We still have a lot of libraries here that need improved Internet access, computers, and digital literacy programs.
