Director, Donald W Reynolds Library, Durant
OK Connect was a great opportunity for our library to upgrade our technology. One T1 internet line for eight PCs for the public, and that many more for library staff, made our connection very slow. The broadband internet access of 100 mgb now supports 77 computers for staff and public use. We also have Wi-Fi inside and outside the library. Everyone is happy with the quick response time of our internet. The laptops provide in-house access for people to use computers in our study rooms for tutoring or test taking when they need a computer for longer times. Our library is one of only a handful places in our community to offer teleconferencing capabilities. We regularly host meetings for area emergency management groups who now have the capability to broadcast to Ardmore, McAlester, Tulsa, Shreveport and other locations.
