Free wi-fi rolled out in libraries

Library users can enjoy free wi-fi after T James Telecoms, of Kettering, signed a deal with Northamptonshire County Council to install the necessary software and hardware in 36 libraries and the county record office.

The system will be managed centrally to reduce the running costs and it is hoped to introduce similar technology at other sites in the county.

The libraries now offering free wi-fi include Earls Barton, Irthlingborough and Wellingborough.
