Public Library Installs Public WIFI in Branches

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

LINDSAY – The Kawartha Lakes Public Library is pleased to announce that WIFI is now available for public use in more branches across the Municipality.

 

“Providing public access wireless Internet is considered a basic library service in the 21st Century”, said Chief Librarian and CEO David Harvie.

 

WIFI equipment has been upgraded in the Lindsay, Bobcaygeon, Coboconk and Fenelon Falls branches, and installed in Bethany, Dunsford, Kinmount, Kirkfield, Little Britain, Norland, Oakwood and Woodville.  CableCable, a local Internet Service Provider, is providing high speed broadband connections to most locations through their fibre network.

 

If patrons don’t have Internet connectivity at home,” said Mr. Harvie, “they can bring their e-devices into their neighbourhood branch to access our digital collection of approximately 52,000 downloadable e-books and 13,500 audiobooks”.

 

Funds provided through a provincial grant from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport via the Southern Ontario Library Service, financed the purchase of the WIFI equipment and ongoing connectivity costs. 

 

“Your public library continues to be a gateway to a wealth of resources on the Internet”, said Mr. Harvie, “all you need is a library card.”
