proposed revised Wireless Internet policy

Below is a proposed revision to the Wireless Internet policy.

This change will be up for vote at the July 21st 7PM Board of Trustees meeting here at the library.  The meeting is open to the public.  Public comments may be made by commenting on this post or using the “Contact Us” link on this site.

The purpose of this revision is for the policy to reflect the current technology, and be phrased in a way that may remain applicable as technology changes further going forward.
