South County Library’s internet is now faster than ever. The Brussels’ library has a new high speed internet connection that is up and running.
“ Come in and try it out,” President of the South County Library Linda Eberlin said.
Research shows that high-speed internet is really as simple as it sounds: super fast Wi-Fi.
“We were very fortunate that in the village of Brussels the internet connection was fairly fast. That is not the case in the surrounding areas though,” Eberlin said.
Eberlin said that the library used to use Frontier, but has since switched internet companies.
“We have our installation with Calhoun Fiber and it is through Illinois Rural Electric,” she said. “People that are not yet hooked up to the high speed internet can now come into the library and get the high speed connection. We hope that people will come in to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.”
Right now, internet speed is more important than ever before, especially if you are working from home or looking to do some research using the computers from the library to work on school work. Did you know that people spend more than 12 hours a day online?
According to a press release, virtually every public library in the United States provides public access to computers, which are often one of the only providers of free Wi-Fi in a community.
“We have computers for you to use or you can bring your own device,” Eberlin said. “We are open on Tuesday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Wednesday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
