Cheshire East Council is to give free wi-fi access to library members.
The service will be available across all of its 16 libraries for all library opening hours.
Members can simply log in using their existing membership number and password/PIN. Anyone who isn’t a member can easily join free of charge.
In addition to wi-fi they can then take advantage of a wealth of free resources. To join you just need to bring in one proof of identity showing name and address.
The service is part of the Council’s aim to help people get on line more easily through a modern library service and promotes digital inclusion across Cheshire East.
The service will adopt the security filtering as on its public network in order to safeguard young people.
Councillor Les Gilbert, Cabinet member in charge of communities, at Cheshire East Council said: "I’m really pleased we are making it even easier for many people across Cheshire East to get online.
“The Council is committed to promoting a digital economy and residents can access a whole of range of services from our website as well as the wider internet in a safe and secure way. It’s another example of the way we are putting residents first.”
