North Lincs libraries get free WiFi

North Lincs libraries get free WiFi

All council libraries in North Lincolnshire now offer free WiFi for residents.

The move from the North Lincolnshire Council aims to bring all its libraries into the twenty-first century with technology.

The libraries where people will be able to browse on WiFi for free are:

  • Messingham Library
  • Haxey Library
  • Kirton Library
  • Epworth Library
  • Goxhill Library
  • Park Library
  • Riddings Library Central Library
  • Barton Library
  • Brigg Library
  • Ashby Library
  • Broughton Library
  • Winterton Library
  • Crowle Library

Bottesford is the only exception - it is moving to new premises at Cambridge House in November, so it would not be cost-effective to install WiFi at the old site for just three months or so - but it will be installed at the new site.

Councillor Neil Poole, cabinet member for Policy and Resources at North Lincolnshire Council, said:

"When people visit the library, besides having access to the usual things you'd expect to find, you will now also have wireless connection to the Internet, enabling customers to do a whole range of things including business with the council.

"We are constantly looking at ways to improve customer satisfaction and experience, and making it easier for people to get in touch with the council.  In our busy lives, we don't always have the time to visit in person, so the Internet is a great way to keep in touch with what's going on, quickly.”
