Fletcher Free Wifi update

by

While I was gone on maternity leave, guest blogger Meghan Dewald wrote about the new wifi network at Burlington's Fletcher Free Library. The post drew a flurry of comments about the library's filtering software.

In case you missed it, Systems Librarian Robert Coleburn commented again this morning:

The library has decided to temporarily disable the content filter onits wireless network. It will remain disabled until I can figure outhow to configure it to be less obtrusive.

To put it simply, the filter was blocking too many legitimate sites.

Again, I appreciate the comments and feedback from the group.

Thanks, everybody, for commenting.
