Wifi Hotspots Now Available To Borrow From Williamsburg Regional Library

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

WILLIAMSBURG-The Williamsburg Regional Library is now making it easier for individuals to access the internet.

Patrons can now borrow wifi hotspots from the library. The hotspots are available to checkout and use at home for those who need access to the internet for work or school. Wifi hotspots can be checked out for a seven-day period. Up to 15 devices can be connected to each hotspot.

For a year, the library has offered wifi hotspot checkouts through its bookmobile service. To borrow a wifi hotspot from either the downtown library branch or the James City County library in Croaker, ask a library staff member. For more information, visit www.wrl.org.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
