Rainier Beach High School Library
The mission of Rainier Beach library is to inspire students, staff, and community members to be life-long learners, critical thinkers, informed decision makers, ethical users and creators of ideas and information, and compassionate leaders who help create a more equitable and peaceful world.
Families seeking free or affordable home Internet access can now apply for assistance from Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). If used in conjunction with several local affordable Internet providers, eligible families can have FREE Internet at home!
For example, if your family applies and is eligible for both Internet Essentials from Comcast and ACP, your home Internet access can be FREE. This solution is better and more sustainable than a hotspot.
Please see this article on our website for more information.
