What is JOIN-N?

The Jefferson Online INformation Network is a volunteer community information network (CIN) to be used by the citizens of Jefferson County to:

  • share local community information generated within the county
  • access other communities throughout the world
  • enhance communication within Jefferson County. 
Whether at home or a public access site, local citizens will be able to find the information that is important to them and to expand their horizons out to the Internet.

JOIN-N is not just a web site. JOIN-N is:

  • about helping our citizens find local information
  • helping everyone, whether in or outside Jefferson County, find out what our communities have to offer.
