AZStRUT is partnering with the Arizona State Library and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance to start a laptop lending program, with an emphasis on laptop lending access in rural Arizona libraries. AZStRUT donated over 250 laptops, valued at $25,000, to 10 rural Arizona libraries to create these technology lending programs. The Arizona State Library is working on broadband solutions to be paired with the computers.
AZStRUT puts real-world technology training to work for Arizona’s students and educators. Their program teaches students valuable technology; provides quality refurbished computers to schools and non-profits around the state; and benefits the environment by diverting old equipment from landfills.
AFTRR (Alliance for Technology Refurbishing and Reuse) is very proud to include AZStRUT as a member, joining a nationwide effort to end the Digital Divide through the refurbishment of over 90,000 computers per year
