"Having knowledge of technology and access to technology is becoming as fundamental as literacy" (Bill Gates, Miami Beach, Florida 2001)
The Haynes Public Library in Governor's Harbour now has both wireless and Cable Internet! But Roz was prudent enough to realize that wireless and cable may have problems, so she kept the dial up connections, so you rarely be left with an internet connection, in the wireless and cable go funky.
Haynes library has new Dell computers with printing capabilities, CD and floppy disk drives and USB ports, which were installed early in 2005.
However if you have a laptop with wireless card, you can use WiFi Hotspot. Wireless signal is available at most places throughout the library.
Priority is given to students after 3 p.m. on weekdays. Students have free access to the computers for school work.
Eight computers have been networked on the second floor of the Haynes Library in Governor's Harbor. (see Photos) There is usually a computer available to rent, if you want to check your email. Rates are $5/half-hour, $9/hour, or the best deal, $25 for a month of unlimited activity! for info, email Ros, the head librarian....
