Free Internet Access
Don’t have a computer at home, or can’t get on it because the rest of the family are always using it? Libraries have free internet access, either via their own computer suites or in some cases through WiFi on your own mobile device – laptop ipad or smartphone.
Libraries help to level the playing field for job seekers. Many jobs now require online applications and libraries offer free internet access and assistance. Libraries also offer skills development such as computer training, literacy classes and assistance for immigrants.
One library user said, ‘We have no internet at home so the free access to the computers is a huge help to my family also the huge selection of books for myself, my husband and my 14 year old son is fantastic. I also do not go to blockbuster anymore; I come to our local library!
