NY Public Library Pilots Program to Rent Out Free Wifi

“Libraries are known for lending books. Libraries have recently also become known as a place to use computers and the internet. Now though, libraries are combining the two in their latest effort to try to close the so-called “Digital Divide”—made up of those who do and do not have access to the internet. The New York Public Library recently completed a pilot project during which certain patrons were able to check out wireless routers giving them free, unlimited internet access at home.” (via NY1)
