Best Public Place to Access the Internet

Austin Public Libraries and Austin Free-Net

With so many commercial cafes expanding their services to become Web cafes, it's impressive that our libraries took the prize yet again. It's not that surprising, really. Our beloved Austin Free-Net sets up and maintains a network for all of our citizens to enjoy. Sharing is the only stipulation here as people sign up for Web time. One can always browse a couple of the stacks while awaiting a turn. A fast connection, an array of helpful programs, and the quiet, intellectual atmosphere is what sets our libraries apart.

Information is power. Support the free press, so we can support Austin.   Support the Chronicle
