We have implemented a new service allowing Harrison Township residents to checkout WiFi hotspots. The new devices will provide Internet access wherever it’s needed, expanding service beyond the walls of the library.
“The Harrison Township Public Library is committed to removing barriers to library resources. These hotspots will allow those without Internet the opportunity to check it out from the library,” said Library Director, Melissa Goins. “With this new service, we hope to reach local students who might need Internet access at home or people who need the Internet to apply for jobs and financial assistance.”
Hotspots are the first non-traditional items offered by the Harrison Township Library. The library is on the August ballot asking the voters for 1 mil, which includes technology upgrades for the library. HTPL director, Ms. Goins states, “This is a first for us but we know that hotspots and other non-traditional items are popular at other libraries. We certainly hope more will follow.”
