Wi-Fi at the Pool and Parks

WHAT: The Grandview Heights Public Library (Ohio) is providing free Wi-Fi at local Parks and Recreation facilities, including the municipal pool. This relatively ambitious initiative was made possible by private funding which is covering all of the costs.

SO WHAT: The library director called the the project "a public service to the community," adding that it will give people more access to the library's online services. In Canada, there was some backlash about plans to add wi-fi hotspots in national parks, but the smaller scale of this project should keep it from being controversial.
