Library Wi-Fi Service Is A Success

Temporary library at Carn Thomas

The introduction of Wi-Fi in the temporary library in the old secondary school is being viewed as a success.

The service was started because there’s just one desktop computer available for the public to use to go online.

During the summer months, Wi-Fi serviceis being used mainly by visitors with their own laptops or phones and has brought in £120 for the library service. The service costs £2 a day and most customers have been sitting for at least an hour to use it.

Members heard that there is a problem with limited space, but it is hoped the new, roomier library at Porthcressa will bring more use.

They’ll look into limiting the amount of material that people access so the Authority’s download limit is not exceeded.
