In response to the pandemic and the lack of reliable high-speed internet available to most of our county, Camden County Library District applied for and awarded grant money to purchase six Wi-Fi hotspots to install throughout the county. The community may use the six hotspots at the Missouri State Park Public Beach 2, Ha Ha Tonka Visitor’s Center, Osage Beach City Park, Macks Creek City Park, and Bridal Cave. At each location, there will be signage that will instruct the public on how to connect to the Wi-Fi. The Camden County Library District will also be adding Bring Your Own Device printing to all six of our branches to help limit the interaction on shared devices throughout the Library District.
This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services 2021-LAX1-PRG21-097.
