Antigo's White Lake branch library has expanded hours, Web coming
Link to January 12 Antigo Daily Journal article.
Excerpt: The new year is bringing some big changes to the Antigo Public Library’s White Lake branch.
Located in the village hall, the library is now offering expanded hours and, in a few months, will add high-speed, wireless Internet service.
“The White Lake branch has always had too few service hours,” Antigo Public Library Director Cynthia Taylor said. “ We have found a way to increase these hours while still cutting some costs. With the village’s help, this is only the first of many changes to library service in this community.”
The new hours are Mondays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The biggest changes will occur this coming spring when the state will bring high speed bandwidth into the library, allowing for high-speed Internet access.
“Like most of the surrounding area, White Lake’s branch library has had to rely on dial-up service for its Internet,” Taylor said. “With the high speed bandwidth, Internet service in White Lake will be comparable to Antigo’s.”
