Cleveland Library now a free WiFi hot spot


Residents and visitors will can now access free internet at Cleveland Library on any WiFi (wireless) enabled mobile phone or electronic advice.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the free WiFi was another way the library was responding to community needs.

“Our library services are constantly adapting to the changing needs of our customers and free WiFi is a great example of this,” Cr Williams said.

“We recognise people want information in a variety of ways, and already offer substantial online resources such as eBooks, eMagazines and our search catalogue.

“Now people can now access the internet in Cleveland Library at any time, without needing to book one of the library’s computers. All you need to log in is the membership number on your library card. Library membership is free!

“Our library team plan to make the most of this new resource too, offering free IT tutorials including ipad basics, where people can bring their own electronic device in and learn how to use it.”

“The support for Cleveland WiFi will determine plans to roll the service out to other Redland Libraries.”
