BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) -- Patrons at Davis County libraries will soon be able to enjoy a new Internet system -- no strings attached.
The county is installing a wireless network that will allow visitors to use laptops with wireless cards and Palm Pilots.
Users who bring in laptops will need only a library card with a bar code number and a PIN to log on.
Library officials have applied for a 20-thousand dollar federal grant to fund the upgrades for the system's five branches, plus a Centerville location set for construction next year.
It's expected to cost between 65-and-75-hundred dollars to wire the branches.
