Computers in Libraries: Keeping Up with Demand

Link to October 17 Rhinelander Daily News article, "Computers in overdrive: Libraries scramble to keep up with demand".

Excerpt: Whether you walk into the public library in Rhinelander, Minocqua or Eagle River, you detect a hum of busyness that isn’t associated with books. Books are still being checked out the old-fashioned way, but the hum comes from all the computers in use — whether they’re the in-house hardwired ones or private laptops scattered about, drawing on free access to wireless. It’s the bank of hardwired computers provided by each library that is taking its toll on resources, and area libraries are looking for ways to keep up with the burgeoning demand.
