Come And Try The Free WiFi Available In Cambridgeshire Libraries

Bar Hill Library
Cambridgeshire Libraries has recently launched a new free of charge WIFI network. This fantastic new service is now available at 40 libraries and library access points for you all to use your WIFI enable devices to browse, download and enjoy online resources free of charge.

Anyone with a WiFi enabled device (such as a smart phone or tablet) will be able to access the internet, select e-books, e-audio books or use the Sorcer Mobile library app (to search the catalogue, reserve or renew your items)..

It’s free of charge and easy to use – you just access the service by connecting to the “CCC_Public” wireless network.

If you are a library customer you will also benefit from upgraded computers enabling you to stay in touch, seek jobs and access online services. The upgrades are now available in all Cambridgeshire libraries and provide modern software including Windows 7, Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox browsers.

If you’re not already a customer – it’s easy to join our library service - it’s free and you can join online here

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that was involved with the public consultation on this project and those that provided feedback at the pilot sites. Your help was invaluable to us making these improvements to our service.

Bar Hill Parish Councillor Andy Pellew said; "It's fantastic news that our library here in Bar Hill is able to offer this service. Enabling broader access to the internet has been one of the County Councils key objectives over the last few years and, while Free Wireless isn't the solution in itself, it is and important part of the larger puzzle. One more excellent reason to get more use out of our local library!"
