Dracut Library Director Concerned About New Neutrality

January 10, 2018 GMT

DRACUT -- Nanci Milone Hill, director of Dracut’s M.G. Parker Memorial Library, voiced her alarm surrounding last month’s vote by the Federal Communications Commission to repeal net neutrality rules.

“We believe in an informed citizenry and in providing you with access to information so that you can make informed decisions about topics that effect you,” she wrote in her newsletter, Off the Shelf.

Seated in her office Tuesday, Milone Hill said the vote is something many library directors are concerned about.

“Libraries are the great neutralizer -- when they can’t afford it at home, they can still have access to it at the library but this new decision on overturning net neutrality may mean that we have to stress limited funds even further in order to provide that service,” she said.
