BURGAW – Recently the NC Department of Information Technology updated their Broadband Infrastructure Interactive Map. However, Pender County officials discovered Hampstead and Burgaw libraries were not listed.

“This was an important detail – especially now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, that our students need Internet to accomplish their schoolwork,” said Erik Harvey, Pender County IT director.

Harvey and his staff worked with the NC Department of Information Technology to update the map to correctly reflect the locations of the Burgaw and Hampstead libraries.
