Free service keeps community connected
Free Wi-Fi services are giving locals a reason to visit their town library now the Covid-19 restrictions have eased.
Residents and visitors in the Isaac region can now download up to 500MB a day on smartphones, tablets, laptops and other wireless devices with the free Wi-Fi available at the region’s eight libraries.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said the new service would allow visitors to discover more of the libraries’ services.
“It’s great to see our communities back in our libraries and now residents can discover so much more than just books,” she said.
“Whether you’re a student, small business owner, traveller or resident, you can now log-on to study, email, browse and read.
“Accessing Wi-Fi is essential to the way we live, and this is just another way we’re making our regional communities more connected, more modern and better places to work and play.”
Cr Baker said the new Wi-Fi service would be available for all users, not just library members.
“Anyone can use the Wi-Fi, but joining the library is free and gives members access to a wide range of online resources, books, movies, music and more,” she said.
Visitors can access the Wi-Fi between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday by simply searching for the network ‘IRC Libraries’ in the Wi-Fi settings.
Isaac Regional Council has libraries in Clermont, Dysart, Middlemount, Moranbah, Carmila, Glenden, Nebo and St Lawrence.
