HAYSVILLE, Kan. –
You’re used to borrowing books from the library.
Now more Kansas libraries are allowing people to borrow the Internet.
The Kansas Public Library system is expanding a pilot program, which allows people to check out portable WiFi hot spots.
The program began in July in Newton and Salina.
It will soon be available at 19 other public libraries in Kansas, including the communities of Clearwater, Goodland and Haysville.
The program is funded by a Knight Foundation grant, which is meant to expand Internet service to rural areas.
Some of the libraries, including the public library in Haysville, will begin offering the service after the New Year.
