Library Wifi Update

Hey Hatters,

If you experienced some wifi issues in the recent past, we wanted to let you know your complaints and suffering were not in vain!

IT is conducting an assessment of all the access points and other hardware necessary to provide a good wireless signal throughout the library. We’re hopeful that the issues will be fixed soon and will keep you updated.

In the meantime, keep the communication flowing. We want to know how you’re doing and what you think!
