Wi-Fi Hot Spot: We always knew the library was a great place to be, but now it’s a “hot spot” for free high-speed wireless Internet service!  Bring along your wireless-equipped laptop/notebook computer and find a comfortable location to check your e-mail, get stock updates and use library resources from just about anywhere in the upper level of the library (and soon downstairs, as well).

Coming soon: laptops for checkout/use within the library, including wireless access to the Internet!
