Public Internet Access
The Wetumpka Public Library has computers for public use with Internet access in order to make available a vast array of information resources and to allow members of the public to become familiar with state-of-the-art information technology. The Library also has Wi-fi access. The Wi-fi code is available at the circulation or reference desk.
Today’s public libraries are technology hubs that millions rely on as their first or only choice for Internet access. Libraries are essential to ensuring access to educational, entrepreneurial and employment resources. For instance, a National School Boards Association study found that nearly all school districts (96 percent) say that at least some of their teachers assign homework requiring Internet use. More and more employers – including major retailers – require job applications be filed online. Government agencies also increasingly require individuals to go online for critical services and resources. To meet this growing community demand, public libraries require reliable, affordable and high-quality Internet access.
