Wifi to be provided at libraries
Patrons of Umina and Woy Woy libraries will soon be able to enjoy wifi access.
Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein announced this as part of a $2 million NSW Government initiative to roll out wife hotspots to 139 country libraries across the state over the next four years.
"The service will ensure those in rural and regional areas enjoy the same levels of connectivity offered by public libraries in metropolitan areas," he said.
"I am delighted that Umina and Woy Woy Library customers with portable wireless devices such as laptops, tablet computers and smart phones will be able to access the free public wireless network at any of its branches.
"An increase in wifi hotspots means more access to important services provided by public libraries and the State Government, including educational and cultural resources.
"It will also enable visitors to take full advantage of the many electronic resources offered by the State Library such as local and international newspapers, full-text journals and databases."
