The Gigabit Libraries Network and San Jose State University's iSchool put out a call for proposals on libraries using TV Whitespace. The selected libraries "will initiate partnership projects with neighboring anchor institutions to explore and develop innovative uses for TV Whitespace (TVWS) to support remote fixed and portable library hotspots at new locations in their communities."
See this document for more information on the grant. If a library is interested in applying, there is a two-minute preliminary checklist video to see if the library qualifies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5IucDfMJ5w&feature=youtu.be.
