TPL Says “Hi” to Wi-Fi

Are you tired of study sessions completely uninterrupted by YouTube clips? Have you resorted to reading books and periodicals rather than maintaining a constant vigil over your Facebook profile? If this behaviour sounds familiar to you, and you live near one of these locations (that is Agincourt, Albion, Albert Campbell, Bridlewood, Centennial, Eatonville, Flemingdon Park, Gerrard/Ashdale, Lillian H. Smith, Mimico, Morningside, North York Central, Parkdale, Parliament, Richview, Riverdale, Toronto Reference, Woodside Square, and York Woods), you can finally breathe a sigh of relief. For today, the Toronto Public Library announces an expansion of its wireless internet service to 19 of its branches. That’s 19 down, and only 80 left to go. But hey, it’s a good start! And yes, this wi-fi is totally free to use.
Apparently, the world’s busiest (or is it second busiest?) urban public library system just received a little funding boost from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and they’ve wasted no time putting it to good use.
Procrastinators, rejoice!
