Provo, UT, City Library Goes Wireless

Thanks to Gary Price for This One.

The Provo City Library hard-line and wireless network connections offer patrons a chance to bring their own devices — laptops and hand-held computers — and access the Internet for the price of a library card. The new technology was installed in collaboration with the Orem-based company NLE earlier this month in the adult section on the second floor. Next week, the wireless service will be available on the library’s first floor.

Such technology is a first for Utah County libraries, said Gery Gagnon, the library’s IT manager, and something that Provo’s library needed.
