Free wifi for Cambridge library

​​12 October 2017 

Waipa District Council has confirmed free wifi is now available at the Cambridge library.

Community facilities manager Bruce Airey said the move to introduce wifi in both the district's libraries offers a great service for its users and brings it up to standard with other libraries around New Zealand.

“Libraries need to adapt to the needs of its users and wifi is a core resource that our community has now come to expect.” 

In addition to the new wifi service, Cambridge Library will be getting 10 new public internet terminals and replacing all of the current library catalogue kiosks for those with touch screens. The touch screen kiosks help people search for library resources and are free to use; there is a small fee to use the public internet terminals to cover the cost of the terminals.  

“It’s all about making it as easy as possible for our users to access information. We have had great feedback on the wifi service and our modernised kiosks since they were installed at the Te Awamutu library so it’s great to see we can continue this level of service in our Cambridge branch.”

The wifi service is available now and the new internet terminals and touch screens will be installed in the coming weeks.
