Libraries across Kent now offer complimentary Wi-Fi for every visitor.

The expansion from the 33 libraries which currently offer it, to the full 99, was possible due to funding from Arts Council England.

The grant, is part of a nation-wide campaign to provide access for visitors using their laptop, smartphone or table PC.

Mike Hill, cabinet member for community services at Kent County Council said: “This is another great example of how libraries are not just about books - they are safe places where people can connect with others, study, research and become part of their community.

“It is good news especially for people living in rural areas and smaller villages where Wi-Fi is less available than in larger towns.”
