Caerphilly County Borough Council is pleased to announce that Wi-Fi is now available in all libraries across the Caerphilly county borough.

With 18 libraries in total, Aberbargoed, Deri, Llanbradach, Machen, Oakdale and Pengam libraries were the last to go live with Wi-Fi at the end of March.

Providing free Wi-Fi throughout our library network is a crucial aspect for improving digital services and will be instrumental in supporting educational, recreational and information provisions for customers and the local community.

This new provision will enable the council’s library service to achieve a Welsh Public Library standard (WPLS) Core Entitlement and a WPLS Quality Indicator which was targeted as an essential area of improvement.

Cllr Philippa Marsden, Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Achievement said, “We are making great strides at improving digital services in libraries across the Caerphilly county borough and the implementation of Wi-Fi is one way we are doing this.  Our libraries aim to serve our customers in lots of ways and having this free facility available means anyone in the local community can now become digitally active.”
