Isle Connect

The Rosenberg Library is pleased to announce Isle Connect, a program that aims to close the digital divide by providing free Chromebooks and up to one year worth of free internet to Galveston County individuals and families who do not have a computer and/or internet access at home.

This program is facilitated in partnership with Compudopt, T-Mobile, and OmniPro.

I’M INTERESTED. HOW DO I START?

Qualifying applicants:

  • Are Residents of Galveston County
  • Have a Rosenberg Library card
  • Either do not have internet access at home, or only have internet access through their cellular phone

Apply online or visit any of the library desks.

Selected recipients will be chosen through a lottery system and notified by the end of October. Compudopt will provide a list of times and locations where recipients can pick up their devices. Devices will be available between November and December.
