From the IFLA 2017 Trend Report for libraries around the world

We need ubiquitous individual Internet connectivity – but while we work on that problem we need to guarantee that libraries – all of them, every single one – can provide Internet access to those who visit them, so even those who cannot afford their own Internet connection can get online at their local library. Our libraries need that connectivity themselves so they can share their collections, activities and ideas with one another, too.
